2011 Fall Meeting attendees listen during a workshop of Navigating the NSF system
San Francisco Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate A55 Fourth Street · San Francisco, California 94103

How do you make your proposal as NSF-savvy as possible? How do you best describe your broader impacts? What is cutting edge in data management? How do you identify the best program for application? How do you access available education and outreach funds? There are always new initiatives starting at NSF, beyond core programs. How do you identify and apply for these opportunities? How are initiatives different than core programs? How can you design effective integrated research? Answer these questions and meet in small groups with Program Officers, get to know what they are looking for, and learn how to ask the right questions, give the right answers, and get funded. This¬†workshop is open to all AGU Fall Meeting attendees and will be particularly helpful to early-career to midcareer participants, especially graduate students, post-docs, researchers, and tenure-track faculty thinking about applying for NSF funding for the first time. This workshop is being sponsored by Earth Science Women’s Network and AGU Education. For more information, see

The workshop is offered at no cost to participants.
