Navigating federal agencies for research and funding opportunities in ecology can be complex, especially for early career investigators. Representatives from multiple federal agencies and organizations involved with ecological research will share information about research funding, opportunities, and/or fellowships at their institutions. At this session, we will strive for representation from DOD, DOE, EPA, NASA, NOAA, NSF, USDA, USFS, USGS, and the Smithsonian Institution. After each agency's presentation, representatives will meet with session participants in small roundtable discussions to answer questions about their programs.
