The National Science Foundation (NSF) is emerging from a 35-day funding lapse in appropriations and shutdown of the agency. Unfortunately, the recent lapse in appropriations (lapse) resulted in missed panels, a backlog of proposal actions, and delays that may result in the cancellation of related activities and certain programs. It is fully recognized that it will take time to work through this extensive backlog of activities.
Guidance to the proposer and awardee community was updated on January 25, 2019, to specify that NSF will be extending the deadline date for the solicitations or Dear Colleague Letters (DCLs) listed via the link above.

are hosting a Grant Writing Course.
This Grant Writing Course is designed to aid rising faculty in the acquisition of their first “R”-type NIH award. By highlighting the underlying culture of the NIH, the attendee gains insight into the key predicates of success. In this regard, the course provides an overview of all facets of the NIH “R” process – conceptualization of grant, construction of grant, routing of grant, and follow-on steps. In addition, intensive focus is provided to allow attendees to transit all of the competitive barriers to funding acquisition. This course differs from other professional grant writing courses in that it fosters the fullest understanding of the institutional logic of the NIH. On this basis, the course provides the tools to achieve productive engagement with the NIH at all levels.
