National Science Foundation Day in Baltimore

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Maryland Science Center are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Dec. 8, 2014, at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

NSF Days provide insight and instruction on how to compete for and secure 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.

Additionally, NSF representatives will be on hand in breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees about potential research proposals.
