Workshop Overview

“Virtual NSF Days” will take place over four days, February 22-25, with 90 minute sessions occurring every day.  These sessions will take place from noon until 1:30 p.m. and will be held just for FSU researchers and staff, who will be able to access the workshops two ways--either at the onsite location or from the comfort of their own computers.

NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding for science, engineering and education research. This session will provide background on the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget. During the sessions,

NSF staff will provide an overview on proposal writing, NSF's merit review process, and programs that fall within their seven research and education directorates, as well as funding opportunities that cross disciplinary boundaries. NSF representatives will be available to answer questions of attendees.

If you are interested in attending one or all of these sessions, please register for this event by clicking the 'register' link on the left side of this page. Once the NSF sign-up page has gone live, you will be notified.
