NSF currently invests in graduate student preparedness activities and has historically encouraged principal investigators (PIs) to include such activities in research proposals to NSF. This webinar, sponsored by UIDP, describes new commitments and funding opportunities to graduate students. More information about these funding opportunities can be found at https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17091/nsf17091.jsp
