About the series
The National Science Foundation and the University of Toledo will be holding a one-day workshop on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. 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.
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 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 Dana Conference Center (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) on the University of Toledo Health Science Campus. There is a $25.00 registration fee for this workshop payable by cash or check the day of the event. Please register by Monday, September 13, 2010. Registration is limited, so please register early. We hope to see you there.
