National Science Foundation proposal and merit review process to be covered in one-day workshop

Jan. 10, 2013

The National Science Foundation and IUPUI will offer a one-day workshop from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 4 for researchers and educators who want to learn more about the Foundation's proposal process. The workshop is free, but registration must be received by Jan. 25. 

The event will be held at Campus Center. 

The NSF says more experienced proposers and NSF grantees will also 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," said the Foundation's George Wilson.

The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities and budget. It will also 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 be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals. 

There is no registration fee for this workshop. However, registration is limited and required, and is due Jan. 25. Registration will not be available the day of the event. Morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch will be provided to those registered.
