Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 16-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 25, 2016. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 16-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.


Full Proposal Target Date:  January 11, 2016

Two target dates per year

Second Monday in January, Annually Thereafter

Full Proposal Target Date:  July 8, 2016

Second Friday in July, Annually Thereafter

The target dates will occur annually on the second Monday of January and the second Friday of July. Proposals are expected to be submitted by the target date. If a PI intends to submit after the target date, s/he must get approval in advance from one of the Cognizant Program Officers to ascertain if a late proposal can be reviewed in the upcoming competition.


The Petrology and Geochemistry Program supports basic research on the formation of planet Earth, including its accretion, early differentiation, and subsequent petrologic and geochemical modification via igneous and metamorphic processes. Proposals in this program generally address the petrology and high-temperature geochemistry of igneous and metamorphic rocks (including mantle samples), mineral physics, economic geology, and volcanology. Proposals that are focused on the development of analytical tools, theoretical and computational models, and experimental techniques for applications by the igneous and metamorphic petrology, and high temperature geochemistry and geochronology communities are also invited.
