Join us for NSF Day at the University of Wyoming, Laramie

About this event

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and University of Wyoming, Laramie, are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at the University of Wyoming Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, 222 South 22nd Street, Laramie, Wyoming.

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- and program-specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

See a draft agenda for this event. Previous agendas are available on www.nsf.gov/nsfdays.
