Postdoctoral Researcher Mentoring Plans

NSF proposals that request funding to support postdoctoral researchers must include a description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for such individuals. In no more than one page, the mentoring plan must describe the mentoring that will be provided to all postdoctoral researchers supported by the project, irrespective of whether they reside at the submitting organization, any subawardee organization, or at any organization participating in a simultaneously submitted collaborative project. See the current NSF Grant Proposal Guide Chapter II.C.2j for more information.
