    2. NSF in a Nutshell • Supports BASIC research • Discipline-based structure but adaptive • Cross-disciplinary mechanisms • Uses grant mechanism • Independent Agency • National Science Board • Use of Rotators/IPAs • Low overhead; highly automated

    3. What we Support at NSF NSF supports basic research across all fields of science, including: NSF does not support applied research, such as: • Social Sciences • Behavioral & Cognitive Sciences • Chemical sciences • Computer and information science • Engineering • Geological sciences • Life sciences • Mathematical sciences • Physics and astronomy • Clinical research • Counseling • Business • Management • Social work • Practice-oriented professional degree programs or, • Classified research

    4. Finding the Right Program • Understanding the structure of NSF • Explore recent awards at http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/ • Sign up to get NSF updates, including funding opportunities, by email at http://nsf.gov/
