Funder Requirements

Funder requirements and guidance undergo regular and frequent review.

To be assured of the most up-to-date requirements and guidance, review your funding opportunity announcement and the funder web site.

The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) may include requirements, or point to broader guidance and requirements according to the program, office, division, etc. which the FOA falls under.

Review the National Science Foundation (NSF) Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide funding opportunity announcement for guidance and requirements, which may supersede increasingly broader and more general guidance at higher levels of a funding agency.
