NSF CAREER Proposal Deadline

Good afternoon all,

As you may know, today is a very high-volume NSF CAREER proposal submission deadline day, and NSF has reported that Research.gov is experiencing issues with signing in and accessing pages. There have been issues accessing FastLane proposal functions as well. Because of these technical difficulties, NSF has announced a CAREER proposal deadline extension until 5pm local time on Wednesday, July 28. This information is available on NSF’s website: https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/. If you have not yet submitted, we would encourage you to be ready to submit ASAP as we do not yet know when these issues will be resolved and we currently have unreliable access to these sponsor portals.

We appreciate your patience and understanding, and will keep you updated.
