How to prepare and submit grant proposals to the National Science Foundation (NSF) is the focus of presentations by representatives of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Office of Research Administration and NSF awardees on the IUPUI faculty.
The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities and NSF programs that cut across disciplines. Specific topics include a description of the various funding mechanisms and their appropriateness for each career stage, attributes of high quality proposals, and resources available within the University to support proposal development.
Highlighting the event is a panel discussion by current NSF reviewers who will provide an in-depth look into the peer review process.

Law & Social Sciences (LSS)(nsf12507)
The Law & Social Sciences Program considers proposals that address
social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules. The
program is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-methodological.
Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific
theory and understanding of the connections between law or legal
processes and human behavior. Social scientific studies of law
often approach law as dynamic, made in multiple arenas, with the
participation of multiple actors. Fields of study include many
disciplines, and often address problems including though not
1. Crime, Violence and Punishment
2. Economic Issues
4. Legal Decisionmaking
5. Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice
6. Litigation and the Legal Profession
LSS provides the following modes of support
1. Standard Research Grants and Grants for Collaborative Research
2. Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants
3. Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowships
4. Workshop and Conference Proposals
