National Science Foundation (NSF) Sponsored Grant-Writing Workshop for Two-Year College Faculty*

Location: Ashland University in Ashland, OH

National Science Foundation Workshop banner; Science, Technology, Engineering, Math

Workshop Focus: The emphasis of the workshop is on learning more about the NSF Advanced Technological Education (ATE) and Scholarships for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) programs, and how to apply for them most effectively. Participants should come with specific ideas for funding they want to pursue. Activities will include informational presentations; planning and writing sessions with help from mentors who have had extensive experience with and in the NSF; and time to network with colleagues from similar institutions around the country.

When: Sunday, June 3 through Wednesday, June 6. Participants will be expected to arrive late afternoon or evening on the 3rd and the workshop activities will end by noon on the 6th. Detailed travel arrangements will be provided after workshop registration.

Eligibility: Full-time STEM discipline faculty from two-year colleges.

Costs: Travel (up to $500) and accommodation costs will be covered for up to 50 participants (up to 2 per institution).

Stipends and Support: Each participant will be eligible for an extra stipend (in addition to travel costs) at the completion of the workshop. An additional stipend will be available after the submission of an ATE or S-STEM proposal in the 2018 competition.

Ongoing Support: The mentor who works with you at the workshop will continue throughout the year to support your efforts to write a complete proposal. This will include creating post-workshop milestones, suggesting resources, and providing feedback. The Project Coordinator at Ashland University will also be a resource to answer questions and coordinate communication between mentors and participants.

To register for the workshop, or if you have any questions about activities or arrangements, please contact Dr. Rick Breault at or 419.289.5922.
