Revisions to the NSF's Merit Review Criteria -January 2013
On October 13, 2015 four senior faculty members in the College of Education (Joe Krajcik, Jack Smith, Bob Floden and Gail Richmond) with extensive and successful experience in applying for funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) came together to share their perspectives on the NSF grants making process.
The NSF Nuts and Bolts webinar, hosted by CADRE and led by NSF Program Officer David Campbell, is designed to introduce DR K-12 awardees to the ins and outs of project management- including information on evaluation and reporting advisory boards, institutional Review Boards (IRB), NSF Highlights, and more.
This webinar, led by NSF program officer Karen King, provides information on the DRK-12 program and solicitation. CADRE, the resource network for DRK-12 grantees, hosted the webinar.
