April NSF Day in Anchorage Alaska

About the series

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of Alaska are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Friday, April 8, 2016 on the UAA's Anchorage campus.

NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding for science, engineering and education research. This day-long workshop will provide background on the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. During the day, we will give an overview on proposal writing, NSF's merit review process, and programs that fall within our seven scientific and engineering directorates, as well as funding opportunities that cross disciplinary boundaries. NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

A draft agenda is attached. Materials are available for download at the NSF Days website.

WHEN: Friday, April 8, 2016, 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM
