Proposal Preparation in FastLane

NSF Applicants: Changes are coming to how to start a proposal in FastLane

Currently, FastLane allows applicants to start a new proposal by copying from a previously submitted proposal or by using a previously created template.

Starting August 2, applicants will only be able to copy proposals submitted under the current version of NSF's Grant Proposal Guide (GPG).

Additionally, applicants will no longer be able to create and save templates in FastLane.

However, the standard process for creating a new proposal remains unchanged.
