NSF Earth Sciences Virtual Office Hours

May 26, 2020

Update May 26: Slides from this presentation can be found here.

The NSF Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) will be continuing our Office Hours series with an upcoming session “Navigating the NSF System” on May 21, 2020 from 3:00-4:30PM EDT. Acting Head of the Disciplinary Programs Section and Program Director for Petrology and Geochemistry, Dr. Jennifer Wade, will conduct the session. In the past, this session has been presented at AGU in workshop format.

The session will consist of a presentation by Dr. Wade as well as a Q&A portion. This session is aimed at scientists thinking about applying for NSF funding for the first time. Dr. Wade will discuss the NSF merit review process and criteria. EAR is committed to assuring current and future PIs that NSF embraces direct interaction with program staff – we are accessible and supportive and want them to succeed.
