The NSF Grant Conference is designed to provide the most up-to-date information about NSF funding programs, including new policies and procedures for submitting grants. At the March conference, the phrase “Ask Early, Ask Often” was included in many briefings and was used to emphasize the willingness of NSF to engage with researchers. Sessions for each of the NSF directorates provided detailed information about funding priorities and directions. There were other presentations about preparing proposals, merit reviews, guidelines and policy updates, legal issues associated with grant management, international research collaborations, and cross cutting and special interest programs.
Notes about the conference and Conference briefings are available on the RD website.
