National Science Foundation Workshops

Cheryl Eavey, Director for the NSF Program on Methodology, Measurement, and Statistics explains the grant application, evaluation, and awarding processes at NSF. Particular attention will be given to helping faculty understand how to write the most compelling proposals, how to time proposals to fit the competitions offered, how to anticipate and manage feedback from reviewers of our proposals, and much more.

Would you like to have an extra advantage in getting your NSF grant applications funded?

In the spirit of helping Stanford faculty to get funding approval for every proposal we submit, Stanford's new Institute for Research in the Social Sciences will be holding a special workshop this fall, and I hope very much that you can join us.

The workshop will feature a detailed presentation by Cheryl Eavey, Director for the NSF Program on Methodology, Measurement, and Statistics and a major-player long-term program director in the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research Directorate at NSF.

Cheryl will explain the grant application, evaluation, and awarding processes at NSF, with an eye toward helping faculty to understand how to write the most compelling proposals, how to time proposals to fit the competitions offered, how to anticipate and manage feedback from reviewers of our proposals, and much more.

In addition, the workshop will feature presentations by a few Stanford faculty who have been successful at getting NSF grants. They will explain what they have learned about effective techniques for proposal writing and will present their proposals and the reviews they got back (for both successful and unsuccessful proposals) to help make vivid the challenges of the process and effective solutions.

In addition, Cheryl will be available to meet individually with faculty members to talk about their past experiences with NSF proposal submission and about future plans.

The formal presentations will be in the morning, and the individual meetings will be during the afternoon. Food and drinks will be provided.
