Find NSF opportunities at '2023 AISES National Conference' in Spokane, Wash.

For more than 70 years, U.S. National Science Foundation investments have advanced the discovery and innovation across every field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. NSF is committed to expanding opportunities in STEM to people of all racial, ethnic, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities and to persons with disabilities.

This year, NSF is proud to be a sponsor and an exhibitor of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society's "2023 AISES National Conference," which runs from Oct. 19 to 21, 2023, in Spokane, Washington. During the conference, NSF will have a booth in the exhibit hall where attendees can speak with program officers about NSF programs and grant funding opportunities available for students, postdocs, faculty and startups.

NSF will also have a session, "Pitching Your Innovation," on Oct. 20, to talk about America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF. The program provides up to $2 million in research and development funding to startups and small businesses to create a prototype or proof of concept, encourages innovators across nearly all disciplines to transform scientific and engineering discoveries into products and services to solve national, societal and geostrategic challenges.
