The National Science Foundation Day, sponsored by the University of San Diego Office of Sponsored Programs, is a one-day workshop 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.
The workshop will provide an overview of the foundation and 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. There is no registration fee for this workshop but preregistration is required. You can register on the NSF website.
