Presentation Title Navigating the National Science Foundation - Tips for Early Career Faculty and Researchers
Author(s) Alexis C. Lewis
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Alexis C. Lewis
Abstract Scope The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports fundamental scientific research, education, and outreach through grants, fellowships, and community-building activities. This presentation will describe the process of NSF proposal preparation and submission, provide insights on how best to communicate with NSF program directors, and discuss ways in which early career researchers can engage with and participate in the NSF Community. A high-level discussion of NSF policies will be followed by insights into best practices from the perspective of the Engineering Directorate. The presentation will be geared toward early-career faculty, but will include information relevant to anyone interested in working with NSF.
