The National Science Foundation (NSF) provides many opportunities for funding basic research and training in ecology and related disciplines. The Foundation supports researchers at all career stages, including undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students and early career faculty. The purposes of this session are to inform our communities about current funding opportunities at NSF and to receive comments and suggestions on how the Foundation can best serve the discipline. NSF representatives will include program officers from programs broadly relevant to ecology and environmental research. Topics that will be covered include, but is not limited to basic research proposals and the review process, new and continuing special competitions, cross-cutting programs, alternative funding mechanisms, and network and observatory infrastructure support. Representatives from the Early Career and Student Sections will also facilitate discussions that will cover opportunities at different career stages and supplemental funding for undergraduates and high school teachers. Following a brief presentation, much of the session will be town-hall style Q&A. Audience members are encouraged to bring questions.

Registration Fee: $0
