The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of Maine are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.
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.
WHEN: Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 7:30 AM-6:00 PM
