NSF Bio Discussing submission process - your input needed

Sep 25 2012 Published by under [Education&Careers]

A call from the Society for the Study of Evolution is going around. If you want your voice heard, now is the time.

Dear SSE Members –

The NSF BIO directorate will decide immediately (possibly Tuesday 9/25) whether to modify aspects of the current preproposal submission process. Two issues have risen as common concerns across the community and may be considered:
The limited number of preproposal submission periods per year (currently 1x/year).
The limited number of preproposals that a single PI may submit simultaneously (currently 2 at the 1x/year submission).

If you have an opinion on the current preproposal process, now is the time for your voice to be heard. The most effective message is likely to be a succinct email expressing your prioritized support for changing one of the two points above sent to:
BIO Assistant Director - John Wingfield - jwingfie@nsf.gov
BIO Deputy Assistant Director - Joan Roskoski – jroskosk@nsf.gov
and copied to your program officers
