NSF Day at Pasadena City College

About this event

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Pasadena City College (PCC) are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016 to be held on the PCC campus in Pasadena, California.

NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding for science, engineering and education research. 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 funding opportunities that fall within our seven scientific and engineering directorates, as well as those that cross disciplinary boundaries.

At this NSF Day, we will also pay particular attention to addressing the research and education needs of those in community colleges. NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline and community college-specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

A draft agenda is attached.
