The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the University of Alabama's EPSCoR (the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) are pleased to invite you to participate in an upcoming NSF Day to be held on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at the Hill Student Center on University of Alabama's Birmingham campus.

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 our seven scientific and engineering directorates, as well as funding opportunities that cross disciplinary boundaries. NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and to host discipline and program specific breakout sessions to personally engage in discussions with attendees.

WHO: Early career and tenure track faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, especially those in the region.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM

WHERE: University of Alabama Hill Student Center, 1400 University Blvd, Birmingham, AL 35233

WHY: This 1-day NSF Day workshop will teach researchers how to better compete for federal dollars that enable their projects. Information will be shared via lectures and interactive sessions. This is a behind-the-scenes look at how NSF works and how to submit fundable proposals.
