[dropcap color=”#5aabd6″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]T[/dropcap]he National Science Foundation (NSF) and Delaware State University are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Friday, September 23, 2016 on the Delaware State University’s campus in Dover.
This 1-day NSF Day workshop will teach researchers how to better compete for federal dollars that enable their projects. Information will be shared via lectures and interactive sessions. This is a behind-the-scenes look at how NSF works and how to submit fundable proposals.
NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding for science, engineering and education research. This day-long workshop will provide background on the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. During the day, we will give an overview on proposal writing, NSF’s merit review process, and programs that fall within our seven scientific and engineering directorates, as well as funding opportunities that cross disciplinary boundaries. NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline and program specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.
Registration fee will be $25 until Sunday, August 14, 2016 and $35 until Wednesday, September 14, 2016 to guarantee a spot. Space is limited. Registration fees are non–refundable after September 14, 2016. Fees include continental breakfast, lunch, and snack breaks.
