UIDP Webinar: NSF Graduate Student Support

July 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Learn about an exciting new NSF supplemental funding opportunity for graduate students seeking career opportunities in any sector of the U.S. economy.

NSF currently invests in a number of graduate student preparedness activities and has historically encouraged principal investigators (PIs) to include such activities in research proposals to NSF. This webinar describes new commitments and funding opportunities to ensure graduate students are prepared for the 21st-century STEM workforce. More information about these funding opportunities can be found at


Dr. Prakash Balan is Program Director at the National Science Foundation with the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships. He has over 20 years of broad experience spanning R&D, new technology development, and commercialization in both large and small entrepreneurial company environments. He holds 12 US patents, many of which are in full commercial use today. He currently manages a spectrum of NSF industrially focused funding programs that include the Industry University Cooperative Research Centers Program (IUCRC), Grants Opportunity for Academic Liaison with industry Program (GOALI) and the Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) Program, all focused on developing industry-academia collaboration and early stage technology development towards commercialization.
