NSF has revised eligibility standards by adding the new subcategory
Institutions of Higher Education (IHE). Special instructions have been added
for international branch campuses of IHEs. Specifically, if a proposal includes
funding to be provided to an international branch campus of a U.S. institution
(including through use of subawards and consultant arrangements), the
proposer must explain the benefit(s) of performing (part or all) of the project
at the international campus. Further, the proposer must justify why the
project activities cannot be performed at the U.S. campus.
