Invitation to a National Science Foundation Workshop at Jackson State University, November 28, 2012

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Jackson State University will be holding a one-day workshop on Wednesday, November 28, 2012. This workshop is primarily designed for researchers and educators less experienced in proposing to the NSF; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative.

The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget.  It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines.  Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates, the Office of International Science and Engineering, and the Office of Integrative Activities will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.

ORSP will cover the $50 registration fee only (no other travel costs) for any UM researcher or faculty member who wants to attend the workshop. Contact Jason Hale (  by October 15, 2012 if you would like to participate in the workshop.
