The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of St. Joseph are pleased to invite you to participate in our upcoming NSF Day to be held on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 on the St. Joseph campus in West Hartford, Connecticut.

NSF Days provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for 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 NSF's seven scientific, engineering and education directorates, as well as funding opportunities that cross disciplinary boundaries.

NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline-specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

A draft agenda is attached.
