NSF Guide to Programs

Previously, the NSF Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) was a standalone document. It has now been incorporated as Part I of the new NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG). Keep current with any changes to the guidelines for NSF proposals, learn the format needed for margins, CVs, etc. NSF RFPs defer regularly to the “GPG” and will provide details only for deviations from this document.
