     Revisiting Responsible Conduct in Research Requirements

NSF requires that all students working on NSF grants must have RCR training.  That training must cover each of the 9 RCR elements that are applicable to the work they are doing on the grant.  The students must sign a form confirming that they have been trained in the appropriate elements.  The list of RCR elements can be found at:  The forms for student signature can be found at: Student Certification of RCR Training.  The auditors and NSF are getting very strict about our need to follow the RCR requirements and non-compliance could impact whether a grant remains viable.


The fall months are usually the time when private organizations such as Guggenheim, American Council of Learned Societies, American Philosophical Society, Sage and others hae set their deadlines for funding in the humanities and the Social Sciences.  It is also the time when faculty are busy, returning to campus, getting ready for classes, and are deeply involved in teaching their courses and materials.  The result is that the deadlines come and go without an application being submitted.  Try to beat the deadline by focusing on writing a proposal now.  Work on it every day for an hour and when it is time to submit it, you should be ahead of the game and ready to go.
