National Science Foundation (NSF) funds research and education in most fields
of science and engineering. Awardees are wholly responsible for conducting their
project activities and preparing the results for publication. Thus, the Foundation
does not assume responsibility for such findings or their interpretation.
NSF welcomes proposals from all qualified scientists, engineers and educators.
The Foundation strongly encourages women, minorities and persons with disabilities
to compete fully in its programs. In accordance with Federal statutes, regulations
and NSF policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin
or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits
of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving
financial assistance from NSF, although some programs may have special requirements
that limit eligibility.
Awards for Scientists and Engineers with Disabilities (FASED) provide funding
for special assistance or equipment to enable persons with disabilities (investigators
and other staff, including student research assistants) to work on NSF-supported
projects. See the GPG Chapter II, Section D.2 for instructions regarding preparation
of these types of proposals.
National Science Foundation promotes and advances scientific progress in the United
States by competitively awarding grants and cooperative agreements for research
and education in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering.
