The University of Maine and the National Science Foundation invite faculty and college students to attend a workshop that gives insights about submitting proposals for federal money to fund research on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.
At NSF Day, early career and tenure track faculty, as well as college students, will get an overview about writing competitive proposals and learn about the NSF review process for funding science, engineering and education research.
The workshop, which will run from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., is a behind-the-scenes look at the NSF mission, priorities and budget. It is for researchers and students from colleges and universities in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island. In addition to lectures and interactive sessions, NSF representatives will be available to answer questions and host program-specific breakout talks.
Space is limited; to guarantee a spot, register online by Friday, Oct. 7. The $35 fee covers the workshop, continental breakfast, lunch and snacks. For more information, contact Andrea Littlefield at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
