Proposal Request Form

Timing is essential with submitting proposals through the Dean’s and OSP. Please send your complete proposal to the Math financial office 10 business days prior to the sponsor's deadline. If a deadline date falls on a Federal Holiday or weekend, factor in additional time for processing. Please complete the proposal request form as soon as you decide to submit a proposal. Once this information is received, a Fiscal Officer will contact you directly.

NSF Format Requirement

Margins 1” in all directions
Use one of the following typefaces identified below:

  • Arial, Courier New, or Palatino Linotype at a font size of 10 points or larger;
  • Times New Roman at a font size of 11 points or larger; or
  • Computer Modern family of fonts at a font size of 11 points or larger.

Final documents should be in pdf format.

NSF Proposal Checklist with Instructions/Templates

If you are submitting a collaborative proposal with other institutions with MIT as the lead, please ask your collaborators to send the FO their administrative contact information and their fastlane proposal number including the proposal PIN so the FO can link the proposals.

Please note that this is a general check list/instruction applying to most of NSF proposals. However, the instructions on the specific program solicitation should always supersede this checklist/instruction. Failure to comply with the submission procedures may result in the proposal not being reviewed and evaluated by OSP.

Thanks for your cooperation!
