UNC's National Science Foundation Day Return to listing


NSF Days are one-day workshops that provide insight and instruction on how to compete for and secure NSF funding for science, engineering, and education research. They provide background on the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget; and overview on NSF's proposal writing, its merit review process, and programs that fall within NSF's seven scientific and engineering directorates, as well as those that cross disciplinary boundaries. 

The workshop will feature various breakout sessions, one of which will address the research and education needs of those in community colleges. NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline and community college-specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.
