This 2015 template is intended to help project leaders and evaluators identify evidence of intellectual merit and broader impacts within their project.
Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts are the criteria that the National Science Foundation uses to assess the potential of proposed work and results of previously funded work. This worksheet is intended to help project leaders and evaluators identify (a) the full range of a project’s achievements related to these criteria and (b) available evidence of these achievements or what gaps in evidence need to be filled.
