UTSA workshop details NSF proposal guidelines

(Jan. 28, 2004)--The University of Texas at San Antonio Office of Research Development hosted the first National Science Foundation Day Jan. 23 at the UTSA University Center on the 1604 Campus. More than 200 faculty members from institutions of higher education across Texas attended the day-long workshop.

National Science Foundation (NSF) representatives from Washington, D.C., advised the participants on procedures and guidelines for submitting proposals to the government agency. Faculty members had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with NSF representatives in smaller sessions for specific disciplines.

"We are hosting this event to try and educate our newer faculty on the process involved in submitting proposals to NSF and to foster collaborations with other faculty members in attendance representing other universities," said Noe Saldana, UTSA director of research development.

In 2003, the National Science Foundation received more than 40,000 proposals. Twenty-seven percent of the projects were funded with an average annual award of $148,000.
