We need this information to order the participant materials for you, each individual attending will be afforded the opportunity to select one Workbookversion you would use the most. For example, if an individual will be applying mainly to the NSF or other agencies similar to the NSF, then we would strongly suggest that they acquire the NSF version of the Workbook.
The “Any Agency” workbook should be ordered only when an individual plans to only apply for a grant from an agency other than the NSF or NIH, For example, those applying to the NEH, the arts, or similar types of proposals might select the Any Agency Workbook. For those in the hard sciences, we recommend either the NIH or NSF versions of the workbook. Please send your response to Amanda Plumley. NOTE: All book orders must be in by March 17th.
