A revised version of the National Science Foundation’s policies and procedures guide adds two proposal types, increases the page limit for biographical sketches and incorporates a new table for the bio and support disclosure information. 

The new Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (NSF 22-1) will be effective for proposals submitted or due beginning Oct. 4. 

Significant changes include: 

A complete list of changes by chapter is available in the guide. NSF plans to conduct a webinar covering these changes. Visit the NSF policy outreach website to sign up for notifications about this and other outreach events. 

Guidelines in the current PAPPG (NSF 20-1) continue to apply until Oct. 4.
