NSF Day registration due Nov. 1

The deadline to register for National Science Foundation Day at UNL is Nov. 1. The event, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Nebraska Union, is a workshop to learn more about the NSF's mission, priorities and budget.

The workshop is part of the UNL's fall Research Fair (Nov. 6-9) and the registration fee will be waived for UNL faculty, staff and students. However, all participants must register through the NSF website, http://ow.ly/eNG4f.

Presenters will discuss proposal and merit review processes and outline NSF’s cross-disciplinary programs. Representatives from the seven NSF directorates, the Office of International Science and Engineering and the Office of Integrative Activities also will give presentations and be available to answer questions about potential research proposals.

Everyone interested in learning more about NSF funding is encouraged to register.
