About the series
The National Science Foundation and Boise State University will be holding a one-day workshop on Tuesday, April 27, 2010. This workshop is primarily designed for researchers and educators less experienced in proposing to the NSF; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative. It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions. We want to extend an invitation to you and to anyone else at your institution who would like to attend this workshop and learn more about the NSF and its programs.
The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines. Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates and the Office of International Science and Engineering will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.
The National Science Foundation is charged with keeping our nation's science and engineering enterprise healthy, dynamic, and relevant and with advancing science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education at all levels from pre-K through postdoctoral.
The workshop will be held at Boise State's Student Union Building, 1910 University Drive, Boise. There is no registration fee for this workshop: however, preregistration is required. Please register by Wednesday, April 14, 2010. Further information about this workshop can be found on the Boise State web site at http://www.boisestate.edu/research/nsf-day.shtml. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
