Revised National Science Foundation (NSF) Merit Review Criteria

12/10/2012 · No Comments

Effective January 14, 2013, NSF will implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, “National Science Foundation’s Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions.” While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Revisions based on the NSB report have been incorporated into NSF’s policies and procedures manuals, websites, and systems. Proposers should familiarize themselves with the Merit Review Principles and Criteria described in the NSF Grant and Proposal Guide (GPG) Chapter III.A.
