FastLane Proposal Submission - Quickstart Guide
This guide is designed to for those submitting a proposal for NSF funding. While this document is not intended to be a substitute for the exhaustive FastLane Help guide, STELAR has compiled the following information to assist proposal writers to locate the Form Preparation and upload the required sections. The contents draw primarily from STELAR’s ITEST Proposal Development Course – which is a self-paced online course for novice NSF proposal writers.
There are three main parts of this document:
- Part 1: step-by-step instructions (including screenshots) on how to navigate to the Form Preparation page of FastLane. This page is where you’ll upload the sections of your proposal.
- Part 2: This section provides a diagram of the Form Preparation page and the corresponding sections from the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG).
- Part 3: brief descriptions of the sections described in the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG)
Additional Note: The information provided in this guide should not be used as a substitute for a thorough review of the Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) or your program’s solicitation (list of NSF Funding Opportunities).
