Special Proposal Requirements


Data Management

All NSF proposals and those NIH applications requesting over $500K per year require data management plans. For more information about the requirements, as well as resources to assist in creating these plans, see the Data Management page.

Postdoctoral Researcher Mentoring Plan

NSF proposals that request funding to support postdoctoral researchers must include a description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for such individuals. Learn more about the requirement and get resources to help craft a plan suited to your proposal at the Postdoctoral Research Mentoring Plans page.

Responsible Conduct of Research

NSF requires institutions to have a plan to train all NSF-supported undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers in the responsible conduct of research. Training plans are not included in individual proposals, but Principal Investigators are responsible for ensuring their students complete the institutional training described at the Responsible Conduct of Research page.

NIH requires that all trainees, fellows, participants, and scholars receiving support through any NIH training, career development award (individual or institutional), research education grant, and dissertation research grant must receive instruction in responsible conduct of research. Each application must include a training plan specific to the proposed project. For more information, see the Responsible Conduct of Research page.
