Pushing for change in academia

I wrote the following email to all members of my department. I share it here in case anyone else is living in a space that would benefit from having the difficult conversations about racism that we all need to be having. The system WILL NOT CHANGE unless those of us who benefit from the system demand change.

Email sent May 30, 2020

Subject: Responding to racism in our country, state, university, and department (Content warning: racism, privilege)

To the students, faculty, and staff of [my department]:

I hope this finds everyone well. First, I want to say how proud I am of each and every one of you. I have witnessed so many exceptional responses to the pandemic, from faculty and teaching assistants quickly transforming courses; to students identifying and sharing resources for rent, food, and living expenses; to the development of virtual communities where we could collaborate to lessen the stress of working from home; to the parents and caregivers who are doing everything they can to keep loved ones safe. I am impressed and glad to be part of this community.

Content warning: racism, privilege

At the same time, I acknowledge the trauma so many of YOU are living with. This trauma may be brand new, may be lifelong, or may be intergenerational. It may stem from living in a society where racism, ableism, sexism, heteronormativity, transphobia, and other biases are pervasive and often ignored.

This message is difficult to write, but I – as a tenured Professor, as a white woman, as a well-funded, “respected” scholar – have vowed to continue to use my voice and my privilege to speak up for the greater good.

I was heartened to read President Stanley’s message acknowledging the impact of racism on Black and other people of color. I am in solidarity with this message – it is vital that we acknowledge the real racist events that occur within our spaces, listen to Black and other POC voices and lived experiences, do work to understand how we can take action to build more equitable and just spaces, and act to work for sustainable change. This is exactly the right moment for each of us to reflect on our privilege, listen to others, decide what sort of department, college, university, and world we want to live in, and act. I am acting and I invite you to act with me. 

Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it is not a problem to you personally (source unknown). I would go a step further and add: Accepting a biased system because the bias benefits you makes you part of the problem. We all benefit from privilege. I certainly do. I do not kid myself that I am solely worthy of the position I hold. Rather, a combination of luck, hard work, and bias allowed me to rise to the exceptional career I have today. I also recognize that I make mistakes, hold biases, and must always be learning. If you would like to learn more about privilege, I recommend Teaching Tolerance. If you object to the term “white privilege” in that reading, ask yourself why and learn more about white fragility.

I assume most of you are aware of racism in the U.S (here is a good primer), especially as the media reports on deaths deemed newsworthy. I wonder, however, if you are aware of racism at MSU, in our College, in EES, in your work spaces, in your classes? I could provide specific examples of racism within our spaces – many of us could – but addressing specific incidents will never result in sustainable change. Sustainable change requires addressing systemic racism and bias. It requires recognizing that the systems we live in were built by specific people to benefit specific people. The very polices, practices, and procedures through which academia operates are rooted in bias. And institutional racism can be very hard to spot.

We are all complicit. Yes, the geosciences are the least diverse science field. No, it is not acceptable to have a nearly all white faculty. No, it is not acceptable to have so few U.S. graduate students of color. No, it is not acceptable to ask students, staff, and faculty – especially POC and/or international colleagues – to be productive in the face of so much trauma and inequity if we are not all actively and continuously working towards lessening the harms we have all caused. If you want to learn more about systemic racism and what can be done about it, I suggest starting with the many resources at the Urban Institute.

My lab does research on access, inclusion, equity and justice; members and affiliates of the lab are experts and we can point you towards other national and international experts – many of them Black or other POC – who are worth reading and listening to. Racial Equity Tools is a good place to start as you think about how you can act. Please reach out if you want to do more.

Be well,


Hoping for Federal Agency Change on Sexual Harassment

It is September of 2022. I recently wrote an email to the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) about NSF’s lack of policy around sexual harassment. “LACK OF POLICY?” you exclaim. “I thought NSF had the best policy to prevent sexual harassment!”

You wouldn’t be alone in thinking NSF was a magical agency that put the victims and survivors first, held harassers accountable, and stood by its stated dedication to ending sexual harassment in science. Back in 2016, NSF declared it may “terminate funding to any institution found to be in noncompliance with Title IX regulations and that does not voluntarily come into compliance.” In 2018, the Program Director (then Dr. Francis Córdova) was vocal about being “tired of learning that male scientists [supported] with public funds have sexually harassed [students], staff and colleagues.” News and social media were abuzz in 2018 when NSF implemented new guidelines requiring organizations to report sexual harassment findings. NSF itself proclaimed these new regulations as an “agency-wide effort to ensure the research and learning environments it supports are free from harassment”. It was a start – and a year later NSF had received 16 notifications of harassment findings or investigations. Yet – problems persist. In 2019, NSF itself received a letter of concern from members of congress regarding harassment occurring at NSF. In Aug 2022 (weeks ago!), the report on the U.S. Antarctic Program revealed “serious concerns” about harassment and the continued potential for harassment in the NSF funded program.

Despite longstanding recognition of the problem and ongoing concerns – and this is important – NSF has ZERO guidelines to limit sexual harassment by individuals funded by NSF.

“ZERO guidelines?” you might say. Yup – ZERO. The only guidelines NSF has are related to organizations because NSF mostly funds organizations. Organizations have to report findings of harassment, but NSF itself does not hold PIs nor coPIs responsible for sexual harassment as individuals nor does it impose any guidance on what ethical behavior around sexual harassment should look like. Rather, those organizations receiving funding are given the responsibility to implement sexual harassment policies, undertake investigations, and report outcomes. That doesn’t sound so bad EXCEPT: policies are completely different across institutions, only formal investigations need to be reported (if you don’t know, many instances of sexual harassment are resolved informally so as not to leave records), and NSF has no guidance to encourage organizations to enact best practice policies such as those described in the National Academies report on Sexual Harassment in Academia.

Here is my email exchange with NSF – make of it what you will. I do not blame NSF for not being at the forefront of combating sexual harassment. Certainly, it is always safest to make bold statement rather than to take bold action. As you can see below, NSF is aware of the 2022 CHIPS act and the inclusion of provisions to combat sexual harassment. Yet, NSF is waiting to take action. I am disappointed in the organization that has funded most of my research, including a conference on faculty and staff sexual harassment. I remain hopeful that we may one day see federal agencies implement victim-centered and forward thinking policies to combat sexual harassment in science.


I am writing with a serious concern about NSF processes related to sexual misconduct. I hope with your taking on leadership at NSF that the organization can reform its approaches to better address sexual misconduct perpetrated by PIs and Co-PIs.

I recently learned that NSF has hired a Program Officer who I repeatedly tried to report for having a sexual relationship with a student funded on an NSF grant co-led by this then-faculty (now your Program Officer). The behavior was particularly concerning because the behavior impacted both the team’s ability to complete their work and, in my hindsight, influenced which students this then-faculty praised for future opportunity. Neither of the then-faculty’s institution nor the student’s institution nor NSF had any policies in place prohibiting this behavior. Had the then-faculty been employed at my institution, they would have been in violation of our consensual relationship policy prohibiting people with power from having sexual relationships with people they oversee. And, with such a finding, this individual would very likely not have been given a position as a Program Officer.

In discussing this with your Program Complaints office in 2021, I asked “Does NSF prohibit “consensual” relationships between award personnel and students funded on awards? Award personnel are PIs and co-PIs, if that helps.” Their response was “NSF does not prohibit  “consensual” relationships between PIs or Co-PIs and students.  NSF does not have a consensual relationship code of conduct we impose or require institutions to adopt.

Given the above, I am urging you to revisit NSF’s guidance to PIs and Co-PIs about power-based relationships. It is disheartening to those of us who are survivors and advocates to see NSF relying solely on institutional processes to set standards for what does and does not constitute sexual misconduct. It is even more troubling to see Program Officers appointed because they slipped through the cracks of policies holding PIs accountable for their behavior. 

I would be happy to speak with you further about this issue and/or encourage you to reach out to the NASEM Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education for guidance (full disclosure – I am an advisory board member). Given the serious concerns raised by the recent review of the US Antarctic Program, now is perhaps the most opportune time for NSF to consider its expectations of all project PIs and Co-PIs relative to sexual misconduct.

LETTER OF REPLY RECEIVED FROM NSF Office of Equity and Civil Rights, Sept 19, 2022

Thank you for your message of September 1, 2022, regarding guidance on power-based relationships in the research space.  Dr. Panchanathan requested that I respond directly to you on his behalf.

As my office articulated previously, NSF does not have a policy or term & condition or a regulation in its Title IX regulations (45 CFR 618) regulating consensual relationships between individuals conducting work on NSF awards.  However, NSF awardee institutions may be required to report such situations to NSF if they violate organizational codes of conduct that would trigger the reporting requirements under NSF’s Harassment Notification Term & Condition. Individuals may also file formal Title IX complaints with NSF’s Office of Equity and Civil Rights (OECR) if they feel that the awardee organization violated Title IX with respect to allegations of sexual misconduct relating to the application of consensual relationship policies.  As for NSF program officers, whether federal employees or Intergovernmental Personnel Act detailees, NSF assesses these personnel for suitability and security, consistent with federal law and regulation.

More generally though, to your primary point about guidance, OECR is constantly seeking innovative ways to strengthen its policies, procedures, and guidance, and in that regard, we very much value recommendations such as yours for my office to consider.  In fact, we are entering what we hope will be a truly exciting period with respect to federal policy development on harassment.  Following the CHIPs and Science Act (P.L. 117-167), the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy will be forming an interagency working group to develop, in consultation with outside stakeholders, a consistent set of policy guidelines for Federal research agencies addressing sex-based and sexual harassment involving award personnel.

In addition, the agency will be entering into an agreement with the National Academies to issue a report on the impact of sex-based and sexual harassment in institutions of higher education

on the career advancement of individuals in the STEM workforce, including “where to focus future efforts with respect to decreasing the prevalence of sex-based and sexual harassment in such

institutions, including specific recommendations.”  We look forward to this report and to engaging in the inter-agency working group.  To be sure, we intend to be active participants in this group and to bring forward ideas and concerns we have received from the science community. 

NSF is committed to transparency and evidence-based action in combatting harassment.

Again, thank you for reaching out to the National Science Foundation on this important issue.

REPLY SENT TO NSF Office of Equity and Civil Rights, Sept 19, 2022

Thank you for your response.

I am well aware that “As my office articulated previously, NSF does not have a policy or term & condition or a regulation in its Title IX regulations (45 CFR 618) regulating consensual relationships between individuals conducting work on NSF awards”. As I noted in my email, I am suggesting NSF change its policies. 

I am glad to hear NSF is willing to work with other federal agencies to establish a consistent set of policies around sexual harassment. I am still quite disappointed that the agency I truly feel is my funding home is not willing to step forward and be the action leader on these issues.


Negotiating the Job Offer

I have blogged about the unwritten rules of academia before. I often share advice to colleagues and students about how to negotiate when a job offer is made – at least in the U.S., negotiation is expected for almost every job, academic or otherwise. Here is my best advice (geared towards U.S. organizations):

  1. LEARN. Read about negotiation! Check out books like “Getting To Yes” and read advice from blogs (for example: InsideHigherEdarticle). Google “how to negotiate a [type of job] offer” where [type of job] is academic, industry, etc.
  2. DO SPECIFIC HOMEWORK. Search for information about salary! Public institutions have mechanisms by which they publish salary information. Some states do this by person name, so you can look up individual salaries! Remember – U.S. institutions typically offer 9-month salaries for tenure-track positions. Make sure you know which salary is being reported publicly (9-month, 12-month, or other).
  3. DISCUSS. Talk to colleagues, especially people who you view as good negotiators and people who have recently been on the job market. If someone at your potential new organization seems open to helping, ask questions about salary and other components of the offer (see below!) to get organization-specific information.
  4. PLAN – GENERAL. Some negotiation will be common across most job types. Remember – for many institutions, these funds are housed in different places in the budget. You can absolutely negotiate for moving expenses, start-up, or other needs and not cause problems for salary.
    • Salary: I encourage people to negotiate salary first. If possible, let the hiring institution make the first offer. Let them set the foundation. If they want you to propose a number, you might respond, “You are better equipped to understand cost-of-living, hidden expenses, and norms. I would appreciate it if you could suggest a reasonable salary.” If you provide a number, the institution will be very unlikely to go above it. If they provide a number, it is very likely to increase.
      • Always negotiate! Do your homework, figure out a reasonable range, and shoot for the top.
      • Once salary is out of the way, start negotiating for the items below (as well as start-up).
    • Moving expenses: Do some research on what a high quality move would cost. Don’t pad the moving expenses, but do make sure you cover the easiest move possible. Organizations often have a set base amount that they will pay for moving.
      • If an organization cannot fund tangibles like moving expenses, you can always ask for a slight increase in base salary. For example, if a move will cost $2500 and an organization cannot cover it, you could say, “The cost of moving is a hardship. Could we increase my annual base salary by $500? I would then at least recoup my moving expenses over 5 years.” This has the added benefit of increasing your base salary – that is magic. It is better to have moving expenses covered, of course, but an increase in base salary is better than nothing.
      • Related to moving: Will the organization provide funding so you and/or your family can visit the location, explore the area, and find housing?
    • Computers/software: Find out if the job will provide you with a computer, software, or other technological resources you need in order to do your job.
      • For some jobs, you may have other needs. For example, if the job will require you to travel extensively, will you be provided with a vehicle and/or travel expenses?
    • Professional development: This might include funds for future training, travel to conferences, or other mechanisms for your career development.
  5. PLAN – START-UP. In academic spaces as well as some industry or government positions, start-up is a common component of a job offer.
    • Think about everything you will need to do the work being asked of you. This should include space, equipment, personnel, time, and other! Here are some questions to consider:
      • Space: Will you have an office and lab? Who will pay to renovate and furnish the space? How much will that cost? How long will it take?
      • Equipment: Many new faculty focus most tightly on physical equipment for research, but equipment can be more than that. Think about all aspects of your position (teaching, research, service, outreach, administration, etc). What do you really need to do your job? What would you love to have that would facilitate your work?
      • Personnel: How are students, postdocs, lab managers, etc. paid for? How many people do you need to get your research or other program off the ground?
      • Time: It may sound strange to think about “time” as part of a start-up package, but there are many negotiation points that can make your life easier. Can you get a teaching release for your first year? What about a teaching release in your last pre-tenure year? What about funds for a teaching aide in your course? Think creatively!
      • Other: Every discipline is different. Do you need special funds to travel, think, do, learn, engage? What about your needs? Do you need to find out about childcare support, medical benefits, or similar? Absolutely remember work-life balance!
      • Finally, an example spreadsheet I often share with people when they are working on putting together a start-up package. Make sure you talk with people in your specific field to get specific advice!

Limiting alcohol during professional events

Recently, the Geological Society of America (GSA) published a news item. At the bottom was this note: “In keeping with its ongoing commitment to ethics and inclusion, Council approved a recommendation from the Committee on Diversity in the Geosciences to prohibit alcohol being served in the oral and poster session areas at all GSA meetings and events.

GSA Council recently approved a recommendation submitted by the Committee on Diversity in the Geosciences (membership here) – this recommendation asked for prohibition of alcohol use during professional talks and posters and laid out clear and specific rationales for why alcohol in professional spaces is problematic. With permission of the rest of my Committee members and assurances from GSA, here is the full final proposal.

What specifically did GSA Council approve? GSA Council approved this recommendation “Recognizing that the presence of alcohol during conference events can inhibit participation by some attendees and recognizing that speakers, presenters, and attendees must be present during talk and poster sessions, GSA should prohibit alcohol in the poster hall and oral sessions while technical sessions are occurring.”

What did GSA Council receive? The proposal contained argument and evidence related to alcohol consumption and professional space. I uploaded a WORD file and also paste the text below.

I hope this is useful for others working towards more equitable and safe spaces in any discipline.

Recommendation to Geological Society of America (GSA) regarding alcohol service during talks and posters

Recognizing that the presence of alcohol during conference events can inhibit participation by some attendees and recognizing that speakers, presenters, and attendees must be present during talk and poster sessions, GSA should prohibit alcohol in the poster hall and oral sessions while technical sessions are occurring.

Discussion: We, the Committee on Diversity in the Geosciences, encourage GSA Council to establish an alcohol policy as recommended above. We make this recommendation for the following reasons:

  1. The provisioning of alcohol during technical sessions limits the ability of specific groups to fully participate in technical sessions. Groups that may be negatively impacted by the presence of alcohol during technical sessions include:
    • Individuals with alcohol or drug dependency
    • Individuals with religious restrictions on being in the presence of alcohol
    • Individuals with family history of drug or alcohol dependency
    • Individuals with history of negative incidents, and particularly sexual or physical assault, associated with alcohol consumption
    • Individuals who feel uncomfortable presenting to an attendee who has consumed alcohol and who is acting unprofessionally, or whose behavior otherwise causes the presenter to feel uncomfortable
    • Individuals who feel uncomfortable listening to a presentation from a presenter who has consumed alcohol and who is acting unprofessionally, or whose behavior otherwise causes the attendee to feel uncomfortable
  2. Estimates of the relationship between alcohol use and sexual assault suggest that alcohol[1] plays a role in nearly half of all sexual assault events in the United States.
  3. Research among young adult populations suggests that the presence of alcohol increases the likelihood of acquaintance sexual assault[2]
  4. GSA has a duty of care for its attendees. Duty of care is both a legal and an ethical concept – ethically, this means that as a professional society, GSA is responsible for its meeting attendees and should take reasonable steps to ensure safety.[3] Limiting GSA provision of alcohol to times outside of technical sessions is a simple way for GSA to engage in ethical steps to ensure duty of care.

We would prefer that GSA stop serving alcohol during meetings but recognize that alcohol access outside of posters and oral sessions is less problematic than alcohol service during events that presenters and audiences must attend.

Your silence is racism.

Your silence is telling on you.

Your silence is complicit with a system built on the backs of the oppressed and which continues to oppress.

“But I can’t”

“But my job”

“But my hopes and dreams for the future”

You can. No job is that important. You’re lucky you get to have hopes and dreams and a future.

Writing Manuscripts – Our Spreadsheet Approach…

One of the most difficult parts of academic writing is getting the manuscript organized. I have authored or co-authored over a hundred papers and I STILL have difficulty figuring out what to include in methods and results, or how to connect my findings to the broader research literature. I have written posts on writing before that acknowledge this difficulty and offer some suggestions:

I recommend reading these blog posts to get a more in-depth sense of my step-by-step approach to writing for academic journals. My two most important first steps are: 1) Choosing a journal; and 2) Deconstructing similar articles in the target journal to get a sense of structure. Once you have done that (and read those blog posts if you are unsure how), writing your paper is simply a matter of dropping your study into the article framework you will have created.

To make the task a little bit easier, my student (Patricia Jaimes) and I created a spreadsheet that encourages writing of the manuscript in a logical way, rather than following the typical format of most journals. If you have read my other posts about writing, you will know that I think the Introduction is the VERY LAST piece of the paper you should write – perhaps in tandem with the Discussion, but certainly at the end and after Methods and Results are complete.

Above is a screenshot of the spreadsheet (which you can download at the end of this blog) that you would use for drafting a paper. This template is intended to be modified to fit the journal you are targeting. Here’s how the template works:

  1. The template contains up to four research questions and a range of lengths for different sections. EVERY JOURNAL IS DIFFERENT.
  2. Based on your analysis of your target journal, adjust the Template for Drafting Papers. This modification might be a bullet point indicating, for example, number of paragraphs needed in each section.
  3. Type bullet points or entire paragraphs into the Template for Drafting Paper sheet.
  4. Cells in yellow can be completed at any time.
  5. Cells containing numbers (1-4) and in colors (blue, purple, orange, green) should be completed as sets. Each number (or color) represents one research question and related methods/results.
  6. When you are ready to move to a program designed for writing (e.g., WORD), copy and paste COLUMN B in the Template Reordered! sheet.
  7. Voila – organized writing!

Update on Sexual Harassers in NASEM

As I noted in a previous post, there are SIX (6) sexual harassers who are members of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. Now that the Science academy has had an initial vote to implement procedures for removing members who have sexual harassment findings against them, perhaps the Engineering and Medicine academies would like to follow suit!

670 documented cases and counting…

Recent news stories about sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations in academia are NOT A FLUKE (Suggested Twitter hashtag: #SHAcademia). I thought it might help to compile publicized sexual harassment and related stories in academia – there’s a whole bunch of other stories in industry, technology, media, and beyond. Recent reports are easier to find, but notice how these stretch back to the 1980s and into the late 1970s. That’s over THIRTY YEARS, people; the Washington Post even wrote a story about professors committing sexual harassment back in 1981. And these are just the cases we heard about through the media. How many more complaints were quietly hidden by universities? How many more were never reported because, let’s be honest here, what’s the point if the crimes are barely punished and people are hired elsewhere anyway? Recent stories about sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations in academia are NOT A FLUKE!

I decided to organize these by discipline and to include both faculty and administrators. Note that it isn’t only men who are harassers or women being harassed, although the majority of the cases below are of men engaging in a variety of violations of institutional policy relative to women. I also didn’t include coaches working at universities – that’s a whole other can of worms. I did, however, include Athletic Directors and people in similar administrative positions. Note that I left off of the list any cases involving accusations alone without investigation, resignation, admission, administrative action, legal activity, etc.

Specifically, these are cases involving faculty and administrators engaging in sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, and similar violations, and where:

  • An institution found a faculty/administrator guilty of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations; and/or
  • There is an admission on the part of the accused faculty/administrator regarding sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations.
  • The accused faculty/administrator resigned or died before an institution could complete an investigation into sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations; and/or
  • A faculty/administrator accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations or an institution settled with their accuser, often with a binding confidentiality agreement and no admissions; and/or
  • There is documented evidence of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations by a faculty/administrator (often in the form of texts or emails); and/or
  • A court made a finding of legal fact that sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations had occurred, with or without legal punishment.

The year listed below refers to the year in which the sexual harassment occurred, in which it was publicized, there was a university or legal finding of fact, or there was an admission of fact by the accused. UPDATED 3/2/17: Freedom of Information requests are resulting in the release of university investigative reports. I am listing these reports under the date of release to make it clear when these cases came to light.

Finally, a number of publicized cases of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, violations of dating policies, violations of campus pornography policies, or similar violations by faculty/administrators towards students or colleagues are described too nebulously to identify the school, or are still winding their way through university or court processes. I posted links to some of these under the general heading OTHER so that they are at least noted.

I am sure this is not a complete list and recognize that this list is weighted towards more recent cases. I honestly got sick of reading about the harassment people have had to put up with.

***Let me know of cases I missed or of anything included erroneously and I will update this post*** TWEET ME: @GeoEdResearch EMAIL ME: libarkin@msu.edu***

Special thanks to the following people for alerting me to additional cases: John Gizis (Twitter: @johngizis); Sonya Miller; Frederick M Walter

Some cases identified through: 1) Case In Point, Auburn University. http://www.auburn.edu/administration/oacp/CaseinPoint.php; 2) AAUP Termination & Discipline archives, for example: http://www.aaup.org/issues/appointments-promotions-discipline/termination-discipline-2004; 3) Daily Californian database of California cases: http://projects.dailycal.org/misconduct/

Finally, to avoid accusations of libel, I list only cases that meet the above criteria and for which a news report, court case, or copy of the institutional investigation is available. I modify the list as new information is provided, including the removal of cases that no longer meet the criteria.


*includes museum and non-profit affiliations where individual worked with students/post-docs; one individual counted for two separate findings as an administrator and then a faculty;
*includes any staff engaged in student services

670 documented cases and counting…

1998, $50,000 settlement for sexual harassment of college student by professor. Southerland v. Tallahassee Community College, Case No. 95-4402 (Cir. Ct. 2d Jud. Cir., Leon County, Fla. 1998).

Applying for NSF Funding – PI perspective

I recently collaborated with a multidisciplinary team of colleagues to write an NSF proposal. The process had all the best characteristics of science: learning each others’ language, building a common understanding of our project goals, building trust and respect for very different forms of expertise. I am so excited to work with this project team and am grateful at their patience in teaching me about their scholarship.

During the proposal development, I realized that guides to NSF proposals are mostly written from the perspective of institutional administrations. These are great, but still leave some steps in the process murky from the perspective of project PIs and co-PIs. I sat down one night and wrote a guide to the NSF proposal process from my perspective as a PI. I hope it is helpful.

First and Foremost: Read the NSF Guide to Proposals!!!! Make sure you access the most current version of the guide since NSF adds updates.

National Science Foundation Proposal Process from the PI/co-PI Perspective
Prepared by Julie Libarkin
Accurate as of January 2019
This document provides guidance for submission of proposals to National Science Foundation (NSF) from the perspective of PIs and Co-PIs.


  1. Identify the grants person in your unit or college. Let them know you are submitting a proposal, provide the link to the RFP, and state the proposal deadline.
    1. Most universities have internal deadlines for routing of budgets and completion of proposal documents. Find out these deadlines.
  2. Every PI/co-PI must have an NSF login. If you do not have one, your institution must generate one for you. This verifies that you have the “right” to submit as an institutional PI. Remember, NSF grants go to institutions not individuals.
    1. Many institutions limit who can serve as a PI. Check with your institution. If you are told you are not eligible, ask if there is an exemption process. For example, many institutions will exempt postdocs and allow them to serve as co-PIs.
  3. A number of certifications are required by NSF (or the federal government) upon proposal submission. Most institutions will know how to handle these certifications and thus PIs/co-PIs generally do not need to worry about these. For institutions with less experience in submitting proposals, PIs/co-PIs may need to do some of the work themselves. If you are unsure about your institution’s capabilities, ask about certifications early.


  1. Read the NSF proposal guide at least once per year. NSF changes their process and rules over time, and typically at least once a year. This guide provides technical guidelines (e.g., page margins), required components of the https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappg18_1/index.jsp
    1. Note that every suggestion made in this document is based on the NSF grant proposal guide! Read the guide!!!!!
  2. Read the RFP. Then read it again. Read it a third time when you think your proposal is done. Ask your proposal co-authors to read it as well.
    1. Look for components of the project description that are different from the components listed in the grant proposal guide. Miss one, and you aren’t likely to get funded.
    2. Read the program page for general details about the program and contact information for Program Officers.
    3. Look up abstracts of recently funded projects. These may be linked from the program page or the RFP. You can also search for abstracts here: https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/
  3. Other Required Documents. NSF requires a suite of documents be completed in addition to the project description. It is very important that these be completed correctly – not following the rules is an easy way to get disqualified.
    1. Cover Sheet. The cover sheet contains information about the PI/co-PIs and the program to which the proposal is being submitted. Most of this is self-explanatory, although working with a grants person is helpful.
      • Note that the “Human Subjects” or “Animal Subjects” box must be checked for those forms of research (even if research is exempt). If approval has not yet been granted by your institutional IRB, type “pending” into the date box.
        1. If you are lucky enough to get funded, NSF will not release any funds until IRB approval is obtained! For full review processes, you may need to submit for IRB approval in the time between submission and learning if you have been funded.
      • Each PI/co-PI must submit a biosketch. This document details your background and must be in a very specific format. I encourage obtaining a copy of a biosketch from a colleague who has already submitted to NSF and modifying it for your needs.
      • Budget and Budget Justification. NSF has very specific categories of allowed costs. Most institutions have templates for these documents and people to help you. Read the grant proposal guide and ask questions!
        1. Do not exceed the total budgetary limit. You also don’t have to ask for the full amount up to the limit. I encourage asking for the funds you need to do the work.
        2. Collaborative proposals are limited to the budget limit. This means that the TOTAL amount on all collaborating proposals must be under that limit!
        3. Make sure you connect with your institution’s central budget office for their approval of your budget and justification!
  4. Current and Pending Support. Each PI/co-PI must document all current support and pending proposals. Most institutions have a template that can be used. If not, obtain one from a colleague who has submitted to NSF. Include funding or pending proposals from any source, not just NSF!
  5. Make sure your total time assigned across all of your funded proposals does not exceed 12 annual months / 9 academic months / 3 summer months. You likely should have less than this time assigned unless you are 100% research in your position.
  6. Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources. This provides documentation that the resources necessary for completing the proposed work are available at the institution of each PI/co-PI. Make sure to keep it narrative and simple; do not to include any monetary information as this may violate the cost sharing rules. I encourage obtaining a copy of a facilities document from a colleague at your institution who has already submitted to NSF and modifying it for your needs.
  7. Data Management Plan. This document details how data will be stored and shared and preserved into the future. Obtain a copy from a colleague or your institution.
  8. Collaborators & Other Affiliations (COA). This document provides specific information to NSF about PI/co-PI affiliations. NSF provides a specific template that must be used: https://nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/coa.jsp
  9. Other Documents that may or may not be required:
    • Postdoctoral Researcher Mentoring Plan. This is required only if a postdoctoral scholar is included in the budget. Obtain a copy from a colleague or your institution.
      1. Only one copy of the postdoc mentoring plan is submitted. This means that all institutions should combine their plans into a single document.
    • Letters of Collaboration. If consultants or other individuals are included in the project, you need to obtain letters of collaboration. These are very simple documents. As of January 2019, NSF suggests this format for the letter – do not include any additional information or your proposal may be disqualified:  “If the proposal submitted by Dr. [insert the full name of the Principal Investigator] entitled [insert the proposal title] is selected for funding by NSF, it is my intent to collaborate and/or commit resources as detailed in the Project Description or the Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources section of the proposal.”
    • Check the grant proposal guide for other documents for special programs and for warnings about submission of non-allowed materials!
  10. Project Description. This is the proposal itself.
    1. Most proposals are limited to 15 pages. Read the grant proposal guide linked above for information about special types of proposals that have different page limits and review processes.
    2. Read the grant proposal guide to learn about EAGERs, RAPIDs, and other opportunities.
    3. NSF requires a few sections be included in each proposal. Unless stated in the RFP, proposers have flexibility in their proposal format beyond the required sections described below.
    4. NSF has two merit review criteria: Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts. Proposals must contain separate sections for each of these criteria. The sections must be labeled Intellectual Merit; Broader Impacts.
    5. Read the RFP you are submitting to. Often, RFPs will contain specific details about other required sections of the proposal!
      • Find out if your institution will do a check of your proposal against the requirements. If not, find a colleague who will help you – often it is hard to see the details yourself after so much writing!
    6. Proposals must also contain a section detailing the Results of Prior NSF Funding.
      1. The prior work section is limited to five pages. Generally, the section should be shorter, however, since the description of the proposed work is the most important component of the proposal.
      2. Each PI/co-PI must be listed.
        1. If NSF funding has been obtained in the past 5 years, at least ONE NSF project must be described.
        2. The format of the funding description must look like this: Co-PI on two projects investigating entrepreneurship education and the lack of gender diversity among engineering students engaged in entrepreneurship training (DGE-1535011, Examining the Effect of Entrepreneurial Education Pedagogy on the Development of Women in STEM, $463,822, 8/15-8/18; IUSE-1504257, Investigating Entrepreneurship Education as a Means to Developing the 21st Century Engineer, $249,944, 6//15-5/18). Intellectual Merit: These projects will identify methods for assessment and causes of gender disparities in higher education entrepreneurship training. Broader Impacts: Findings will provide the foundation for studies examining the engagement of students of different backgrounds and gender, and help inform curriculum to engage a diverse community. Publications/Products: Hirshfield, et al., 2017; Huang-Saad et al., 2016; Huang-Saad, et al., n.d.; Morton et al., 2016; Shekhar et al., 2017.
          1. Note that Publications/Products can be Products, Publications, or both.
        3. All references included in prior work must be included in the References Cited document.
        4. State “No prior NSF funding” if no NSF funding has been received by a PI/co-PI.
        5. While NSF only requires description of ONE prior NSF grant, this does not preclude inclusion of more than one NSF grant or other grants. Generally, it is a good idea to include non-NSF funding for PIs/co-PIs with a record of grants, especially when these grants fit well under the proposed work.
          1. You have flexibility about how to describe this work since it is not NSF. That said, I encourage including at least the title, dollar amounts, and dates. Including the Intellectual Merit, Broader Impacts, and Publications/Products may be helpful if space allows:

Funding related to [proposal topic] The project team also has funding specifically related to sexual misconduct.

Jones has received funding from international government and charitable organizations for her research on [TOPICS]. Selected funding includes:

  • PI on a grant from GROUP (Title; dollars; dates)
  • Co-PI on a grant from GROUP (Title; dollars; dates)

11. Project Summary. This is a brief summary of the proposal. Three sections are required and only these three can be entered: overview, the intellectual merit of the proposed activity, and the broader impacts of the proposed activity.

  • NSF has a character limit for the project summary. The Fastlane system calculates a character count that is slightly different from WORD. A safe approach is to write one single-spaced page with 1-inch margins and 12-point times New Roman font. This will be close to the limit.


  1. Fastlane and Research.gov have a common login. I prefer to use Fastlane since I am very familiar with it. Fastlane also has a long history of operation and therefore is less likely to glitch. Research.gov is also only available for proposal submission for limited RFPs at this time.
  2. Proposals with multiple participating institutions can be submitted as a single proposal with subawards or as collaborative proposals. Determine if you are submitting as a sub or collaboratively.
    1. At many institutions, a single proposal with subawards results in overhead being charged on the first $25,000 of EACH sub. Only one annual report is due each year.
      1. If a single proposal is utilized, only the submitting institution officially submits to NSF. All documents from collaborators are uploaded by the single institution, including budgets.
      2. The submitting institution must submit the following documents for the PI and all co-PIs. Items in italics are submitted only by the lead institution on collaborative proposals, below.
        1. Cover Sheet

  • The submitting institution will require a subaward agreement with subawardees. This usually looks like a scope of work describing in general what subawardees will do, a budget and budget justification, and a letter of agreement. You should connect the grants people between institutions to get this completed as per your institution’s guidelines.
  1. A collaborative proposal means funds are provided as separate grants to each institution and thus no extra overhead. Each institution must submit an annual report each year.
    1. If a collaborative proposal is utilized, choose one lead institution. Most documents will be submitted by that lead, but collaborators must create a proposal and submit their own documents.
      1. See above for list of documents submitted by the lead institution.
    2. The lead institution is linked to the collaborating institutions through proposal pins. The collaborating institutions create a pin for their proposal and provide the proposal ID and pin to the lead institution.
    3. The collaborating institution must submit ONLY the following documents through their proposal. The lead institution will submit all other documents.
