Office of the Provost: Faculty Invitation to NSF Grant Workshop at SIUE

| September 11, 2014

Dear Friends:

Our colleagues at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, Illinois, are bringing the National Science Foundation to their campus on Friday, Oct. 10, and have invited Webster University faculty to participate in a workshop on how to prepare high-quality grant proposals. The NSF representatives are from their Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE): the division that offers the types of grants that mesh well with Webster University’s STEM programs and our goals for supporting faculty and undergraduate research.

NSF also funds research in the social, behavioral and economic sciences in addition to math, computer science and lab-based sciences. Here is a link to descriptions of some NSF grants that support social, behavioral and economic science.

I urge all interested faculty to participate in this workshop – this is a rare (and affordable) opportunity to interact directly with NSF program directors who are actively looking for new investigators at undergraduate institutions like Webster. Historically, these NSF workshops come to the region only every 3-4 years. It’s also a great way to network with other local STEM faculty who are interested in external funding and raising their profile in their field.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Carolyn Corley or Linda Dahlgren if you have questions about  this workshop. The deadline to register is Oct. 1. You can visit the conference website for more information and to register.

From the Office of the Provost, Julian Schuster
