Jumpstart Grantsmanship Workshop at Cal Poly Pomona Los Angeles


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