NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding for science and engineering research and education. 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 and program specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.
