Due to the nationwide spread of COVID-19 and the closure of colleges and universities, the National Science Foundation (NSF) created a website to keep award winners and applicants informed of changes in funding requirements and reporting. “NSF understands the effects this challenge will have on NSF-funded research and facilities, and we are committed to providing the greatest available flexibilities to support your health and safety as well as your work,” NSF stated in a March 23 letter.
With travel restrictions and social distancing measures in place, NSF published a series of guidelines and updates to research guidelines for grant winners that address the following areas:
- Adjusting travel costs/ expenses for cancelled conferences
- Deadline extensions for proposals and applications
- Guidelines for updating/ modifying proposals during quarantine period
- Re-scheduling NSF site visits
