Sign up to receive announcements and information from the NSF

Tech faculty and researchers should sign up at the GovDelivery Website to receive email notices about newly-released Program Solicitations and announcements of interest from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

If you sign up for email notification, you will be emailed about newly-released Program Solicitations in the following specific disciplines:

  • Biology
  • Computer and Information Sciences
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Geosciences (including Polar Programs)
  • Math/Physical Sciences
  • Cross-Cutting programs


The NSF uses the following classifications in selected Program Solicitations:

Ph.D. granting organizations are academic organizations that have produced more than 20 Ph.D.s or D.Sci's in all NSF-supported fields of science, mathematics or engineering during the previous two academic years.

Non-Ph.D. granting organizations are two- and four- year colleges and universities that have produced fewer than 20 Ph.D.s or D.Sci.s in all NSF-supported fields of science, mathematics, and engineering during the previous two academic years.
