The workshop will provide overviews of NASA Education’s current priorities and requirements, the NASA mission directorates, and the URC proposal solicitation, proposal development and submission process. Representatives from NASA centers and headquarters will be on hand to interact with participants and answer questions.
Also during the conference, on May 14, 2008, several NASA Higher Education programs will be featured during the opening and concurrent sessions.
