About the series
The National Science Foundation and Middle Tennessee State University will be holding a one-day workshop on Friday, December 18, 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. 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 workshop will be held in the State Farm Room in the Business and Aerospace Building on the MTSU campus. There is a registration fee of $30.00, and preregistration is required. Please register by Thursday, December 10, 2009. A registration form can be found on this page. You can register by sending the requested information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by faxing or mailing the registration as indicated on the form. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
