The 2022-2023 NSF CyBR-MSI: PDW is a five-part virtual proposal development workshop that is designed to prepare researchers to develop and submit proposals for the 2023 NSF CISE-MSI Program Solicitation (NSF 22-518). The workshop will enhance participants’ understanding of strategies for developing more effective proposals.
Throughout the workshop, researchers will gain critical knowledge and tools for preparing a grant proposal to the CISE-MSI program, including information on crafting impactful Project Summaries and Project Descriptions, persuasively describing Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts criteria; composing budgets and budget justifications; and strategies for effective proposal preparation.
This workshop takes place in five (5) four-hour-long sessions. This is an interactive workshop featuring mentoring from senior researchers with a successful track record of proposing and implementing NSF awards. There will be ample time for researchers to work with mentors and their research teams on their proposals to the CISE-MSI program. Additionally, there will be time for questions, discussion and a simulated proposal review panel.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand NSF Merit Review criteria and how they are applied to proposals for NSF CISE Core Programs
- Prepare a Project Summary and Project Description to submit to the CISE-MSI program, informed by competitive proposal elements and the NSF CISE Merit Review Criteria
- Understand the panel review process for evaluating proposals
