Types of submissions

Types of Submissions

The Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) comprises documents relating to the Foundation’s proposal and award process.

In this ongoing segment of our blog, we will provide a series of infographic snapshots to highlight some of the important information found in the PAPPG. This in no way replaces the need to read the PAPPG before submitting a proposal.  The goal of this ongoing blog theme is to make the information in the PAPPG more accessible to our readers by providing clear, concise, colorful, and informative graphics.

For complete and official information about type of submissions, please refer to the PAPPG (effective January 25, 2016).


* Preliminary proposals are part of the proposal process in the Division of Environmental Biology and the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems in the Directorate for Biological Sciences.
