How to Acknowledge EPSCoR Support

The National Science Foundation (NSF) requires grantees to acknowledge EPSCoR support with the award number in every publication of any material based on or developed under an EPSCoR grant (including student posters, web pages, publications, etc.).

EPSCoR funding awardees are responsible for assuring that every publication of material (including web pages) based on or developed under EPSCoR awards, except scientific articles or papers appearing in scientific, technical or professional journals, contains the following disclaimer:

“Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.”

NSF support must also be orally acknowledged during all news media interviews, including popular media, such as radio, television, and news magazines.

For more information, refer to the NSF Grant Policy Manual.
