Since many community members will be writing ATE proposals this summer, we're going to assemble links to proposal writing tips and tools on this page.
1. Advanced Technological Education Program solicitation - NSF 18-571
2. Proposal Awards Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG 2020): If you're going to write an NSF grant, have a copy of this guide near you at all times.
3. Getting an NSF ID - to use grant preparation tools like Research.gov or Fastlane, you'll need an NSF ID. Follow the directions on pages 1-2 NSF Account management.
4. After you've applied to get an NSF ID, you'll need to contact your grant office in your institution to have them change your user role to "Investigator."
5. Creating your biosketch.
The NIH and NSF have new requirements when it comes to your biosketch. Those of you who've done some bioinformatics work might be happy to know that some of the tools in your NCBI account may help.
a. If you don't have an NCBI account, go to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ and click the Sign in to NCBI link in the top right corner.
b. You'll find a link to register for a new account.
c. Afterwards, you can log in and use the My NCBI to access the SciENcv tools for working on your Biosketch and formatting it for either NSF or NIH.
Once you create a biosketch, you'll be able to change it from one format to another and use either the NSF format or the NIH format.
The video below shows how to use the NCBI's tools: My Bibliography and SciENcv to create a profile, add citations and import information from 3rd party accounts like ORCiD.
