Presenter: Dr. Greg Anderson, National Science Foundation, EarthScope 
Program Officer

Summary: I know I need to make my proposals to the National Science 
Foundation (NSF) as competitive as possible, but how do I do that? How 
do I find out what programs are out there? How do I know what a given 
program is looking for? Where would be the best "home" for my proposal? 
How do I articulate my ideas clearly, powerfully, and succinctly? What 
"counts" as broader impacts, and how do I describe them convincingly? 
How do I learn what my fellow PIs think makes a strong proposal? GPG, 
DCL, REU, why so many acronyms and what do they mean? Won't my program 
officer be annoyed if I call with questions? Greg Anderson, a program 
officer in the NSF's Division of Earth Sciences, will share his thoughts 
on all these questions and more (spoiler on the last question: No. 
Really. Promise.) This Webinar is aimed primarily at early career folks, 
but established PIs are welcome and may pick up some useful tips as well.

You may contact Andy Frassetto (andyf at iris.edu) with any inquiries.
