Funding Opportunities to Support Two-Year College Students, Faculty, Programs, and Collaborations
Monday, November 5, 2018 5:30-7:00 pm. Room 102 of the JW Marriott Hotel, Indianapolis
In association with the 2018 Geological Society of America Meeting.
Co-convened by Eric Baer and Heather Macdonald, sponsored by SAGE 2YC and NAGT
Please join us for a workshop/discussion with NSF Program Directors from the Geosciences Directorate, successful award recipients, and community college faculty as we share examples of the range of possibilities in NSF-funded projects involving two-year college faculty, discuss strategies and challenges in writing and execution of federally-funded projects, hear suggestions for writing successful proposals, and consider issues raised by two-year college faculty who are interested in garnering external funds for their work.
Lina Patino (Acting Division Director of Earth Sciences) and Brandon Jones (Program Director) will participate in these discussions.
Light refreshments will be served.
