New NSF Grant Term

On October 21, 2018, a new grant term will be incorporated into all new NSF awards, and into any funding amendments made to existing NSF grant awards. This new grant term and condition is part of NSF’s efforts to ensure that research and training environments are free of sexual and other forms of harassment; a goal that Johns Hopkins University shares. The new grant term requires any NSF funded institution to notify NSF, through a secure, confidential portal, of all final determinations by the institution that an NSF funded PI or co-PI has engaged in sexual harassment, or other forms of harassment in violation of federal law, and to notify NSF when certain administrative leaves or other administrative actions with respect to an NSF funded PI or co-PI are taken. More information on the new grant term is available on the NSF website: https://www.nsf.gov/od/odi/harassment.jsp.
