Crediting funders

  • All videos  must reference funder support (e.g. NSF, ED, NOAA) in the actual video. Most presenters add this reference to the very end of their video. Upon submission, we will reject any video that does not include the proper reference.
  • If you’re project is funded by NSF, we list the requirements below.
  • If your project is funded by another federal agency, you should follow their protocol, as required. Below, we provide information that we have gathered for some federal agencies, but encourage you to be in touch with your program officer and/or your agency with any questions about their particular requirements.
  • To see samples of videos with credits, you can view some of the videos from last year's showcase (credits are usually at the end of videos) here: 2018 STEM for All Video Showcase. Note: When viewing this listing of videos from last year's showcase, you can use the 'By NSF and Other Federal Agencies' filter to find videos funded by the different federal agencies.

 

NSF Requirements

If your project is funded by NSF, the video must show the NSF logo, award number, and disclaimer in the video. Any NSF-funded video that does not have all three of these things will be rejected. Here is sample acknowledgement and disclaimer text: 

This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. ('your' NSF grant # here). Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
