Case Number: 1-17-0016-0                                                                     Page 1of1




         We received an allegation that a Subject 1 plagiarized text in an NSF proposal for a Doctoral
         Dissertation Improvement Grant (Proposal). 2 Specifically it was alleged that the Proposal
         contained text copied from a completed dissertation. 3

         We reviewed the Proposal and found de minimis copied text from the dissertation. We found no
         other copied text in the Proposal. We sent the Subject a letter reminding him of his responsibility
         to appropriately cite all material in documents submitted to NSF.

         Accordingly, this case is closed with no further action taken.
