Upcoming Conference and Program Officer Presentation: April 20 and 27

We have two important events later this month. Graduate students and their faculty mentors are all encouraged to attend both events.

The first, on April 20, 2009 is a full day conference, Applying for External Funding: Advice and Guidance on how to Navigate the Funding Maze. The day will consists of a series of panels that include graduate students and post docs who have applied for funding, faculty who have served as reviewers and a program officer. Plan to join us for all or part of the day on April 20th. If you plan to join us, send an rsvp to gradfund at rci.rutgers.edu.

Our second event on April 27, 2009 is a visit by NSF Program Officer John Tsapogas. Mr. Tsapogas is a Program Officer in the NSF Office of International Science and Engineering. During his talk, he will present information on a number of programs that should interest graduate students including the NSF International Postdoctoral Fellowship and their East Asia Pacific Summer Institute. If you plan to join us, send an rsvp to gradfund at rci.rutgers.edu.

Posted to the blog is additional detailed information on both events. We hope to see you on April 20 and 27!
