National Science Foundation Proposal Limitations
January 8, 1992

For some time the National Science Foundation has included the following proposal limitations in their application guide, "Grants for Research and Education in Science and Engineering" (GRESE - NSF 90-77).

  1. A 15-page limit for the project description.
  2. A limit of 10 publications for senior personnel.
While these limitations have been in effect, they have not been rigorously enforced. Just recently, we have had 2 proposals returned because the publication list exceeded 10. For all future submissions, please be sure to keep your proposal within the limitations in order to avoid having it returned without review.
