[Note that the NIH Virtual Conference is currently full (as of 10-22-2020) but registration will re-open Oct. 31-Nov. 19, 2020 to allow universal access to seminar materials. All presentations will be available on the NIH Grants YouTube Channel].

NSF Virtual Grants Conference:



This is a first for NSF! The conference will be held virtually (and free) during the weeks of Nov. 16th and 30th. Registration opens on Oct. 29th, and sessions will be recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend in person. 


Here is the info from NSF:

Save the Date! Join the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the very first NSF Virtual Grants Conference, to be held during the weeks of November 16 and November 30, 2020.


This event is designed to give new faculty, researchers and administrators key insights into a wide range of current issues at NSF. NSF staff will be providing up-to-date information about the proposal and award process, specific funding opportunities and answering attendee questions.


Registration will be free of charge and opens on Thursday, October 29 at 12 p.m. EST. Each conference session will have its own Zoom registration page. Please sign up only for sessions that you are able to attend. For those who cannot attend the live conference, all recorded conference sessions will be available on-demand shortly after the event. We anticipate the sessions will reach capacity very quickly, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. We will send an email reminder to our listserv on Wednesday, October 28.


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