Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) offers postdoctoral research fellowships to provide opportunities for scientists early in their careers to work within and across traditional disciplinary lines, develop partnerships, and avail themselves of unique resources, sites and facilities.  The fellowship program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with experience that will establish them in positions of leadership in the scientific community.  During tenure, fellows will affiliate with an appropriate research institution(s) and conduct research on topics supported by OCE.  The OCE fellowship program has two tracks: 1) Track 1 (Broadening Participation) and 2) Track 2 (International).  Fellowships are awards to individuals, not organizations, and are administered by the fellows.


This program provides educational opportunities for  Postdoctoral Fellows . Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program guidelines above.
