Materials Broader Impact

The National Science Foundation (NSF) evaluates each proposal's intellectual quality as well as the merit of its larger consequences, or the impacts and benefits of your planned research on society. A section describing the plan's intended larger consequences must be included in every proposal sent to the NSF.

However, consideration of wider consequences is not restricted to NSF submissions. In terms of outreach, community-engaged scholarship, translation, dissemination, public humanities, community-based participatory research, community-based teaching and learning, diversity/inclusion/equity, and other concepts, broader impacts (BI) can be defined.
