Enhance your grant proposal by collaborating with OMSI to create a customized Broader Impacts plan for your National Science Foundation or any other proposals. OMSI can provide letters of support, a scope of work, budget and other required documentation. Let OMSI’s team of experienced educators, program developers, and science communicators help broaden the reach of your research.
When assessing NSF proposals, reviewers evaluate all proposals against two criteria:
The Broader Impacts section of your proposal should discuss the broader impacts of the proposed activities. Broader impacts may be accomplished through the research itself, through activities directly related to specific research projects, or through activities supported by and that are complementary to the project.
NSF values the advancement of scientific knowledge and activities that contribute to the achievement of societally relevant outcomes. Such outcomes may include:
