Each year, NIH conducts two Regional Seminars on Program Funding and Grants. These seminars explain the application and review process; clarify Federal regulations and policies; and highlight current areas of special interest or concern. The seminars are appropriate for grants administrators, researchers, and graduate students.
The two-day Regional Grants Conference provides key insight into a wide range of current issues at NSF including the state of current funding; new and current policies and procedures; and pertinent administrative issues. The conference is appropriate for new faculty, researchers, educators, and administrators.

The workshops are appropriate for researchers, educators, extension specialists, and administrators.
