NSF Day at Texas Tech

About this event

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Texas Tech University are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at TTU's Rawls College of Business Administration.

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 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 specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

A draft agenda is attached.
