Sunday, Oct. 14th, 12:30-4:00 pm

This NASA sponsored workshop is open to all interested planetary scientists at no cost. At some time in your career as a scientist, you will need to obtain funding to conduct your research. Perhaps that time is now, perhaps it is still a few years away, but that time will come. Are you prepared for it? Fortunately, NASA awards funding every year for research like yours. But even in the best of times NASA selects only one out of every three proposals submitted for funding. Proposal writing is a necessary skill for every scientist, and just like the rest of your skills it needs to be developed. The session will be presented by Dr. Curt Niebur, a program scientist and NASA HQ, and will focus on understanding NASA’s research programs and will include information on how to write a research proposal, where to apply for funding, and pathways for participation on missions. Light refreshments will be provided during breaks. More information and registration:
