Other Proposal Components

Main content start
  • NSF Plans for Safe and Inclusive Working Environments for Off-Campus Research - Effective for all NSF proposals submitted or due on or after January 30, 2023 that propose to conduct research off-campus 
  • NSF Collaborators and Other Affiliations (COA) Template (.xlsx)
  • NSF Mentoring Plan Sample Template (.doc) - Effective for all NSF proposals submitted or due on or after May 20, 2024 a Mentoring Plan is required for any proposal that requests funding to support postdoctoral scholars or graduate students. In no more than one page, the mentoring plan must describe the mentoring that will be provided to all postdoctoral scholars or graduate students supported by the project, regardless of whether they reside at the submitting organization, any subrecipient organization, or at any organization participating in a simultaneously submitted collaborative proposal. Please note that separate plans are not required for postdoctoral scholars or graduate students. The plan may, however, specify how different components of the mentoring program will be enacted for the two types of researchers.
  • Stanford Research Development Office - Proposal Section-Specific Guidance
    • The Stanford Research Development Office (RDO) is a unit under VPDoR that aims to strengthen collaborative or strategic research, scholarship, and creative activities by helping to set PIs up for sponsored research funding success through project-opportunity alignment, early preparation, and proposal development support.  The RDO has composed and curated resources to assist in preparing content for some commonly required proposal sections.
