EVENT 12/2: Navigating the NSF System webinar
October 24, 2020
The National Science Foundation's Division for Earth Sciences (EAR), within the Directorate for Geosciences (GEO), is hosting a “Navigating the NSF System” webinar on December 02, from 2:30 - 4:00 pm (EST). This session is normally presented as a workshop at AGU and is a good opportunity for first-time proposers and early career scientists to gain insight into the “ins and outs” of NSF’s grant proposal process. The webinar consists of a presentation followed by a live Q&A session with a panel of Program Officers.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
