August Funding Reviews – NSF's merit review process determines which research has the greatest potential


August Funding Reviews – How to Choose

NSF receives about 50,000 research proposals every year. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the progress of science, but it’s able to support only a fraction of the proposed research with its limited resources. This video briefly explains how NSF determines which research has the greatest potential–which would be the most fruitful investment of taxpayer dollars and best align with the Foundation’s mission to promote the progress of science.

    Damn you people, you totally over-played your abilities and turned this into a PR propaganda piece. Making it sound like you are cat's meow, when you've bureaucractized research to the point of absurdity. Just look at how thick the "Proposal and Awards Procedures Guide" by the NSF is, outrageous, how many wasted cognitive hours are spent in this process – hours that could be spent innovating, inventing, and unlocking the future unknown potential in all areas of the human endeavor. Get your act together NSF you need to simplify the process. Why not read how IBM and others did in the 80s? Stupid Humans.

    Excellent video, thanks for creating this. Of course the focus is and should be on the USA, but even for non-US people in science this video helps to understand how proposals could generally be reviewed. This is indeed the Gold Standard.   I'm somewhat surprised how few times this video is Viewed here on Youtube, but that may be still the quiet period around the 4th July.  Keep up the good work!
