Welcome

Broadening Participation: 2021 MPS Workshop for Young Investigators

Online Workshop on October 7 – 8, 2021

The University of Florida, in collaboration with the NSF Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), will be hosting a workshop for new and future Principal Investigators. New researchers, assistant professors, and exceptional postdocs considering academic career are encouraged to apply. Investigators from underrepresented groups in STEM are especially encouraged to apply. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, this workshop will be held online for two days on October 7 and 8, 2021. The main goal of the workshop is in two-fold: (1) to provide prospective Principal Investigators who have just received their first award or who are considering applying for funding from the MPS programs with valuable information and advice on the policies, procedures, and opportunities available at NSF, (2) to train a pool of future reviewers and encourage volunteering to review as a way to learn about NSF process.  In addition to informational presentations on various topics relevant to the future PI’s, each participant will write a mock proposal in advance and will go through full panel review processes in breakout sessions.  Details on the workshop program will be announced.
