NOVA to host NSF Grant Writing Workshop

In collaboration with the Office of Grants Development, the Mathematics, Science and Engineering (MSE) Division at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale Campus will host a National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant Writing Workshop with speaker Dr. Thomas B. Higgins, program director for NSF’s Division of Undergraduate Research.

The NSF Grant Writing Workshop will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9 at NOVA-Annandale, 8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA, CA Building, Room 302.

The MSE Division is happy to welcome Higgins to the campus for this event where he will provide an overview of NSF opportunities for funding STEM programs at NOVA, including undergraduate research. During this workshop, Higgins will also do a mock proposal review and will be available to answer your questions.

This event is free and open to all students, faculty and staff from NOVA and other colleges and universities. The MSE Division asks that faculty encourage their students to attend the workshop to learn about how to get grants at higher education institutions.
