Return to Tech and CARES Act Information

Research - Toolkit

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing stress on proposers, the research community has not been able to adequately prepare and train their staff for the implementation of the new requirements.

NSF has therefore made the decision to delay the requirement to use NSF-approved formats for the biographical sketch and current and pending support sections of NSF proposals until October 5, 2020.

NSF will continue to implement all other changes to the PAPPG beginning June 1, 2020.

  • The research toolkit provides samples and templates for common proposal components, as well as information on the core facilities available at Tennessee Tech.  This page is a work in progress, so please let us know if you think of something to be added.
