Inaugural 2019 Jumpstart Grantsmanship Workshop in Las Cruces, NM


Our 2019 Jumpstart summer workshops provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding.  The workshop prepares attendees to submit applications to the NSF HSI Initiative call NSF 19-540

The content will focus on preparing grants for the new NSF HSI Initiative that seeks to increase grant support for STEM Education in Hispanic Serving Institutions (due date September 18, annually). During the event, participants will have a rare opportunity to seek advice from successful grant applicants, to direct questions to experienced and knowledgeable grant awardees, and to closely analyze a sample proposal to learn which pitfalls to avoid.

Intended Audience

The workshops are open to anyone interested in applying for the NSF HSI Initiative call NSF 19-540. Preference is for applicants who are (1) from 2 year and 4 year HSIs with limited prior NSF support (2) faculty within their first 10 years of academic appointment, and (3) those who seek to collaborate on applications with these institutions.
