National Science Foundation Workshops - DECEMBER 6, 2012
8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
104 Morris Conference Center
The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides funding for both fundamental research and educational programs in the non-medical sciences and engineering. In fact, NSF funds approximately 20% of all federally supported basic research conducted by U.S. colleges and universities. If you conduct research in the sciences (which for NSF purposes include biological sciences, computer science, math and physical sciences, as well as the social, behavioral, and economic sciences), NSF may have a program for you! In addition to funding for basic research, NSF also has specific award programs for educational (pre-K through all levels), curricular, and other projects. SUNY Oneonta faculty have a good track record in receiving both basic science and programmatic funding in the past, including awards for activities like renovations to laboratory space, the SUNY Oneonta Noyce Scholars Program, and purchase of scientific instrumentation. Visit one of two workshop sessions to be held on Thursday, December 6 in 104 Morris Conference Center to learn more from staff members in the Grants Development Office about navigating the application process. Two one-hour sessions will be held: one at 8:30 a.m., and the second at 3:00 p.m.
