NSF accounts for about 25% of federally supported basic research at U.S. academic institutions.

June 16, 2020

The National Science Foundation is mindful of the challenges many in our country face today. We also are acutely aware that while the research community is dedicated to its work, science may not be at the forefront of everyone’s minds during this particular moment in our nation’s history. With this in mind, NSF has decided to extend some of our upcoming proposal deadlines where possible. In addition, we are aiming to provide maximum flexibility in all cases and ask that any principal investigator urgently in need of an extension please contact their program manager as soon as possible. NSF is continually assessing deadlines at the program level and will continue to balance making awards with the needs of our community.
