The Biological Anthropology program utilizes target dates, not hard deadlines.
For the July 20, 2020 target date, proposals will be reviewed in the Fall 2020 cycle if received by August 31, 2020. This applies to proposals submitted to the Biological Anthropology program as well as the Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (BA-DDRIG) program.
Please contact Rebecca Ferrell and Siobhan Mattison with the Biological Anthropology program if you intend to submit after the target date, indicating the anticipated submission date and the type of proposal.
Please note that the Biological Anthropology Senior competition does not have a solicitation. Please follow the standard proposal preparation guidelines in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (see below under Program Guidelines).
Please note that the Biological Anthropology DDRIG competition has a revised solicitation (18-504) with the following changes:
- If the proposal is a resubmission, the first paragraph of the Project Description must summarize how the proposal has responded to previous reviewer concerns.

The Biological Anthropology Program supports basic research in areas related to human evolution and contemporary human biological variation. Research areas supported by the program include, but are not limited to, human genetic variation, human and nonhuman primate ecology and adaptability, human osteology and bone biology, human and nonhuman primate paleontology, functional anatomy, and primate socioecology. Grants supported in these areas are united by an underlying evolutionary framework, and often by a consideration of adaptation as a central theoretical theme. Proposals may also have a biocultural or bioarchaeological orientation. The program frequently serves as a bridge within NSF between the social and behavioral sciences and the natural and physical sciences, and proposals commonly are jointly reviewed and funded with other programs.
