Policy for non-U.S. Citizens visiting NREL

If a team includes any non-U.S. citizens who wish to participate in-person at the competition event held April 17-18, 2020, on the NREL campus, each non-U.S. citizen must submit a Foreign National Data Card (FNDC).

As you enter team members, indicate their country of birth and/or country of citizenship (list both if different) and that team member will be sent the appropriate FNDC, and information on the deadline for submitting their FNDC. Even if you are unsure of which team members will be attending the competition event on NREL’s campus, they should still go ahead submit an FNDC.
