Impact of NSF 04 - 034 (OISE Change in Procedures) on PHY researchers
May 27, 2005
Because of the change in OISE procedures and policy, proposals with an international component of research associated with the programs of the Physics Division (PHY) must now be submitted directly to PHY, and will be considered in competition with all other proposals for which the division has responsibility. The proposals with highest priority for funding in the division are those with the highest rankings from peer review under the two NSF review criteria. These proposals may contain international components as is appropriate for the proposed activities, and as such may be funded in partnership with OISE. Proposals whose sole purpose is to add an international dimension to work already supported will in general receive lower priority.
Researchers can also contact OISE staff with expertise in the country or region of interest for information about institutions and counterpart agencies. (Contacts for cognizant program manager(s) are available from the OISE staff directory).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2012, its budget was $7.0 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives about 50,000 competitive requests for funding, and makes about 11,500 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $593 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
