Examples of Broader Impacts

Examples of actual NSF-funded broader impacts can be found in the NSF Broader Impacts Special Report (November 2014).   Note that NSF has removed from the Guide references to examples that had been available prior to 2013. This was done to eliminate confusion over use of the document, which was too often viewed by proposers as a prescriptive list of additional requirements instead of as illustrative examples.
