NVC Handbook

Successful applicants for large grants (funded at $750,000 or more) are required to appoint a National Visiting Committee (NVC). These committees are groups of advisors that work with grantees and NSF to help them achieve their goals and objectives. They assess the plans and progress of the project and report to NSF and the project leadership. Committee members also provide advice to the project staff and may serve as advocates for effective projects.

The purpose of this Handbook is to help those who are responsible for organizing an NVC, planning and conducting meetings, and for postmeeting activities. It is intended for the chairs of NVCs, the project leadership (PIs or a project coordinator), and for committee members (advisors). This handbook is a set of reminders, called checkpoints, to consider when organizing and implementing NVCs.
