Full Proposal Target Date

    October 13, 2017

    Second Friday in October, Annually Thereafter

        Second Friday of October

Research proposals (as opposed to conference proposals) are expected to be submitted by the target date. An extension may be granted under unusual extenuating circumstances, provided that approval is obtained from the cognizant Program Director prior to the target date.


The Algebra and Number Theory program supports research in algebra, algebraic and arithmetic geometry, number theory, and representation theory.


Principal Investigators should carefully read the program solicitation "Conferences and Workshops in the Mathematical Sciences" (link below) to obtain important information regarding the substance of proposals for conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools, and similar activities.  

For conference proposals with budgets not exceeding $50,000, which in accordance with NSF policy can be reviewed internally at NSF, the following target dates are in effect:  For an event that will take place at some time prior to October 1 during a given year, the proposal should be submitted in October of the previous year.  For an event that will occur in the period October 1 through December 31 of a given year, the proposal should be submitted in May of that year.  A conference proposal with a budget request exceeding $50,000 should be submitted roughly seven months before the event is scheduled to take place, in order to allow time for external review.
