NSF Agency Overview

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Bizzell Library, Helmerich Community Room (BL LL 118)

The Center for Research Program Development and Enrichment will facilitate a workshop focusing on the purpose, structure and culture of the National Science Foundation (NSF).  NSF is an independent federal agency that was created "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense..." It isupports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future, and is the only federal agency whose mission includes support for all fields of fundamental science and engineering, except for medical sciences.  In addition to funding research in the traditional academic areas, the agency also supports "high risk, high pay off" ideas, novel collaborations and numerous projects that may seem like science fiction today, but which the public will take for granted tomorrow.  If you would like to learn more about the NSF, what it funds and how to be more competitive, please join us.


Facilitated by Alicia Knoedler, the session willl be open to all faculty, postdocs, and staff; however, seating is limited so please register HERE
