On Tuesday, February 9th, we will offer a workshop on  Applying to the National Science Foundation to Support Your Dissertation Research

The workshop will take place from 1pm to 3pm in the Busch Campus Center, room 174, Busch Campus

NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants
are grants available to doctoral students to improve the quality of their dissertation research. These grants provide funds for items not normally available through the student's university. Additionally, these grants allow doctoral students to undertake significant data-gathering projects and to conduct field research in settings away from their campus that would not otherwise be possible. Proposals are judged on the basis of their scientific merit, including the theoretical importance of the research question and the appropriateness of the proposed data and methodology to be used in addressing the question.

Award time period: 12-24 months Award Size: $7,500-$20,000 (depending on program)

Eligibility: Open to all graduate students in eligible fields enrolled in a US-based graduate program.

In this workshop learn how to apply for NSF funding to support your dissertation research.

Registration is not required
