Join the Zoom

Stop by this quarter's OSP Office Hours to get started with GrantForward, a funding search database subscription service available to the SU community. After a brief tour of GrantForward’s many features, OSP staff will be available in this hands-on session to assist you with setting up and optimizing your researcher profile, creating saved searches, and/or setting alerts. Whether you are just getting started or would like to reserve dedicated time to spend with GrantForward, all are welcome to join for any portion of this hour that suits your schedule.  

  • To set-up your researcher profile, please have a PDF of your current CV or list of publications, or the link to a webpage with your CV/list of publications handy – GrantForward will use this information to generate a list of initial keywords, which you can then edit.
  • If you would like a refresher on creating keywords and conducting funding searches, materials from our Fall Faculty Workshop “Identifying Funding Opportunities” are available here.

NSF Demystified: Preparing a competitive proposal to the National Science Foundation


Please check back soon for a new date. Thank you!

Interested in pursuing support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) – which funds 27% of all federally-supported research at U.S. colleges and universities and over 25% of current externally-funded dollars at SU – but slightly overwhelmed by what can feel like an intimidating process? It is more manageable than one might think!

 Join us as we ‘demystify’ the NSF by guiding participants to:

  • Understand the primary objectives and structure of the NSF
  • Identify promising NSF funding opportunities
  • Delve into NSF opportunities that are particularly well-suited for the SU context – including those that support both research and programmatic efforts – with a particular focus on the Research at Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program
  • Break down the components of NSF proposals
  • Gain critical insights into developing and writing a competitive NSF proposal
  • Benefit from tips from successful NSF-funded SU investigators
