Jennifer Laaser has been selected to participate in the Cottrell Scholars Collaborative (CSC) New Faculty Workshop that will take place in Washington, DC in the ACS National Offices on August 3- 5, 2017.

The CSC, in partnership with the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) and the American Chemical Society, is implementing a New Faculty Workshop program to improve the penetration of research-validated pedagogies in chemistry departments around the country.

This program is designed to aid newly-hired faculty in the Chemical and Physical Sciences at research intensive universities to develop strong research and teaching programs. The workshop will focus on effective time management, new teaching practices, and integrating teaching and research.

National Science Foundation (NSF) Director France A. Córdova today publicly presented President Donald J. Trump's Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 NSF budget request to Congress.

The FY 2018 NSF budget request of $6.65 billion reflects NSF's commitment to establishing clear priorities in areas of national importance and identifying the most innovative and promising research ideas that will yield the highest return on investment for the nation. It supports fundamental research that will drive the U.S. economy, support our nation's security, and keep the U.S. a global leader in science, engineering and technology.

NSF expects to evaluate over 50,000 proposals in FY 2018 and, through its competitive merit review process, make nearly 11,000 awards, including 8,000 new research grants.
