NSF's "broader impacts" criterion

Many scientists are still unsure how to address the "broader impacts" criterion in their NSF grant applications. The agency has issued a "Dear Colleague" as a reminder of the importance of including this in all proposals. Click on the "Representative Activities" link in the letter for some specific examples of activities that satisfy the "broader impacts" criterion. Please note that although the letter is from the Division of Chemistry, the criterion applies to all applications in all programs. This means you.
