About the series
The National Science Foundation and the University of Southern California will be holding a one-day workshop on Thursday, April 12, 2012. 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 Davidson Conference Center on the USC University Park campus. There is a registration fee of $35 for this workshop. After March 31st, the fee will increase to $50. You can register on the NSF web site using the link below. You will also find a link there to the USC web site where you can pay the registration fee and find additional information about the workshop. Please register by Thursday, April 5, 2012. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
