Virtual Office Hours: Things I wish I learned earlier about NSF
On Monday, August 14th, 1 – 2pm ET DEB hosted their Virtual Office Hour. Program Officers discussed things they've learned during the transition from Principal Investigator to NSF Program Officer, helpful tips and tricks when applying for NSF funding, common misconceptions about the Merit Review Process, and more. Representatives from DEB programs were available for questions. Upcoming DEB Virtual Office Hours are announced ahead of time on DEBrief, so we suggest you also sign up for blog notifications.
If you can’t make it to this or any future office hours, don’t worry! We post recaps and the presentation slides of all office hour sessions. You can also visit our Office Hours homepage for slideshows and recaps of past topics.
