Presenter: Michael New, NASA
When: July 14, 2014 11AM PDT

As part of the Astrobiology Research Focus Group workshops, Dr. Michael New from the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters has made a tradition of presenting to the early career scientists about writing effective proposals to NASA. In this video, he addresses how to navigate and interpret solicitations, discusses how reviews are conducted, and gives invaluable tips on writing and submission. This is a must-see for anyone new to proposal writing in general, as well as seasoned proposal writers seeking funds from NASA.

Dr. New is the Astrobiology Discipline Scientist, Discovery Program Lead Scientist, and Program Scientist for the Planetary Data System. He manages NASA’s Exobiology and Evolutionary Biology, Emerging Worlds, and Habitable Worlds grant programs.
