North Dakota's first NSF Day is May 18

About the series

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and North Dakota State University are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 on the North Dakota State University's campus in Fargo.

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.
