Save the Date! Join us on May 18-19, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Grants Conference! The Spring 2020 NSF Grants Conference will be held at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center.

These events are designed to give new faculty, researchers and administrators key insights into a wide range of current issues at NSF. NSF program officers representing each NSF directorate will be on hand to provide up-to-date information about specific funding opportunities and to answer attendee questions.

Registration will open on Tuesday, March 17 at 12 p.m. EST. NSF anticipates the conference will reach capacity very quickly, so we encourage you to register as soon as it opens. NSF will send an email reminder to our listserv on Monday, March 16, 2020.

In the meantime, please feel free to check for the most up-to-date event information, and view recordings of sessions from last year’s event. You may also contact us via email at

Those faculty that are able to register for this conference can request that their registration costs be covered by the Office of Research.
