Beginning in January 2023, all new proposals must be prepared and submitted in or FastLane will no longer be a preparation and submission option. The National Science Foundation strongly urges proposers to prepare and submit all eligible proposals in now, to support a smooth transition from FastLane proposal preparation and submission to in January 2023.

New Proposal Preparation Functionality Available May 2nd

New Postdoctoral Fellowship Proposal Type

New Proposal Features

NSF Public Access Repository (NSF-PAR) Enhancements Effective May 2nd

Training resources are available on the About Public Access page. Information about the NSF Public Access Initiative including FAQs is available on the NSF Public Access Initiative page. Feedback about the PAR 2.0 pilot may be submitted to

For information about proposal functionality planned for release in the coming months, please see the Proposal Submission Capabilities on the About Proposal Preparation and Submission page. All enabled proposal and submission types are also available to try out on the Proposal Preparation Demo Site (you will be prompted to sign in to if you are not already signed in). Demo site FAQs can be found on the About Proposal Preparation and Submission page left navigation menu.

Please see the list of PAPPG (NSF 22-1) significant changes and clarifications for all of the updates. New proposal and submission types were also enabled in the Proposal Submission System.
