Exclusive pre-registration for the Fall 2015 National Science Foundation (NSF) Grants Conference is being offered to 38 Georgetown University (GU) faculty and staff from 10:00 a.m. on September 8, 2015 through 10:00 a.m. on September 10, 2015. The conference agenda and breakout session information will be available on the Conference Documents tab of registration website.
The Office of the Provost and Office of the Dean for Research will pay $100 of the $380 registration cost for each of the 38 faculty and staff who registers during the pre-registration period! GU faculty and staff should complete the online conference registration and pay the full registration fee by credit card. The 38 pre-registration registrants will be notified by email that the $100 discount will be refunded to the credit card used when registering, after approval is received by the Office of the Provost and Office of the Dean for Research. The Fall 2015 NSF Grants Conference will sell out quickly, so do not miss your opportunity to pre-register! 

Pre-registration is limited to 38 GU faculty and staff, and you must wait to register during general conference registration once pre-registration capacity has been reached. Please visit to sign up to receive an email alert when the registration website opens for general registration.
Key representatives from NSF, as well as your colleagues—faculty, researchers, and grant administrators—representing colleges and universities from across the U.S. will participate. This two-day conference is a must, especially for new faculty, researchers, educators, and administrators who want to gain key insight into a wide range of issues at NSF, including the state of current funding; new and existing policies and procedures; and pertinent administrative issues. NSF Program Officers representing each NSF directorate will be on hand to provide up-to-date information about specific funding opportunities and to answer your questions. The registration website includes a preliminary program agenda.
The conference hotel is conveniently located 3 blocks from the Rosslyn metro station. Please see the GUTS Rosslyn Shuttle Schedule for departure times. In addition, complimentary self-parking will be available at the hotel for conference attendees.
