    Kirk Johnson: "10 Myths About NSF Funding: How You Can Get the National Science Foundation to Support Your Research"

    12:00 pmLamar 555

    The National Science Foundation famously funds cutting-edge research in the physical and natural sciences. But even social scientists who realize that NSF supports anthropology and sociology often have misconceptions that can derail a funding proposal--or discourage people from applying in the first place. Dr. Kirk Johnson, Assistant Professor of Sociology & African American Studies, shares his insights as an NSF reviewer in a presentation designed to encourage professors and graduate students to take advantage of NSF's many avenues for supporting research in the social sciences.

    Part of the Department of Sociology & Anthropology Fall Lecture Series.
