About the series
The National Science Foundation and the University of San Diego will be holding a one-day workshop on Wednesday, January 19, 2011. This workshop 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 stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions. 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 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. Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates and the Office of International Science and Engineering and the Office of Integrative Activities 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 Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice on the University of San Diego Campus. There is no registration fee for this workshop but preregistration is required.
Please register by Tuesday, January 11, 2011. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
