About the series
The National Science Foundation, Kent State University, Cleveland State University, Youngstown State University, NEOUCOM, and the University of Akron will be holding a one-day workshop at Kent State on Tuesday, February 10, 2009. 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.
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 workshop will be held at the Student Center, Kent campus. Preregistration is required. Please register early as registration may be limited. You can get more information about this workshop and register on the Kent State web site at http://www.kent.edu/rags/NSF-Day.cfm. There is a $25.00 registration fee for this workshop.
