NASA SMD Proposal Writing Workshop
The success of scientists within the fields of earth and space sciences largely depends upon their ability to obtain federal funding. One of the largest challenges to these community members is to create compelling, compliant, well-written proposals with a high probability of ranking highly within review panels and being funded.
Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) is released annually from NASA and is the primary source of funding for fundamental research, as well as data analysis, in these science communities. The NASA SMD Proposal Writing Workshop focuses on teaching the audience key points to communicating science through successful proposal writing.
As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to understand the proposal writing, reviewing, and selection process for federally funded research.
The goal of this workshop is to allow for:
- Reach out to a more diverse audience of participants to take advantage of this valuable experience to improve their career
- Reach out to those in non-traditional locations
- Provide an opportunity to network with peers
- Building resilience in ourselves and others through shared values
We’d like to thank NASA’s Science Mission Directorate for funding this work. Additionally, we’d like to thank the Innovation Foundry at JPL for their input and guidance on creating the workshops. Finally, we’d like to thank all the amazing participants of this workshop over the years, whose feedback has helped shape this work.
Upcoming workshops are easily accessible from our Eventbrite site. Take a look and discover a time that works for you.
