About the series
The National Science Foundation, Louisiana Tech University, and Louisiana EPSCoR will be holding an "NSF Day" workshop on Tuesday, November 30, 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 & 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 Louisiana Tech University Student Center. There is a registration fee of $25.00 for this workshop payable to Louisiana Tech the day of the event. Preregistration, however, is required. Please register by Monday November 22, 2010. You can register using the link below. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
