NSF Limited Submission: American National Election Studies Competition

Applications are now being accepted for the NSF Limited Submission – American National Election Studies Competition NSF 18-519.

Institutional Limit: 1 (one)

Internal Deadline: Friday, December 15, 2017, 5 p.m.

The American National Election Studies (ANES) produces high quality data from its own surveys on voting, public opinion, and political participation. The mission of the ANES is to inform explanations of election outcomes by providing data that support rich hypothesis testing, maximize methodological excellence, measure many variables, and promote comparisons across people, contexts, and time. The ANES serves this mission by providing researchers with a view of the political world through the eyes of ordinary citizens.

The Political Science Program in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences expects to make two awards for the 2020 Presidential election cycle with the award to run from fiscal years 2018 to 2021. We anticipate that NSF will make two awards totaling no more than $11.5 million over four years. One will be for the traditional face-to-face survey. The second will be for a web-based survey. While these will be independent awards, the two awardees will be expected to work closely together. The expected start date is July 2018.

The policy and process for limited submissions can be found on the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs website. Please contact OSRP with any questions.
