NSF Day at the University of Alaska Anchorage (POSTPONED)

About the series

The NSF Day in Anchorage has been postponed to the Spring of 2016. Please check back for updated date and time.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held at UAA's Anchorage Campus.

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.
