About this event
The National Science Foundation and the Florida Board of Governors will be sponsoring a National Science Foundation Day Workshop on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at the University of Central Florida. This workshop is open to personnel from all public and private colleges and universities in Florida. The program 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 increase the competitiveness of our faculty who apply for grant funding at the National Science Foundation. 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 day-long 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. 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 at the University of Central Florida Student Union, Pegasus Circle, University of Central Florida, 4000 Central Florida Boulevard, Orlando, Florida. There is no registration fee for this workshop: however, preregistration is required. Please register by Thursday, January 5, 2012. You can register using the link below. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there!
