To submit proposals to the National Science Foundation (NSF) and conduct other award-related activities using NSF systems, you must have an NSF ID. You may only have one NSF ID. This ID is a unique numerical identifier assigned to users by NSF and, one established, is yours for you to use no matter your affiliation(s) in the future.
To create a new account, follow these step-by-step instructions:
When you get to step 4 (bottom of page 2 in the instructions), select “Add Investigator or Authorized User Role” to request a PI role. Then, to find Syracuse University as your organization, use DUNS number 00-225-7350. Following the confirmation step, the Syracuse University Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) will receive a notification email to approve your affiliation and role.
