The NSF/SaTC Aspiring PI Workshop is a two-day workshop (May 4-5, 2023) designed for researchers interested in participating in NSF’s Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC) program. Participation in the workshop is open to those with research interests in all sub-fields of security, privacy, and trustworthy computing have never been funded by SaTC or any of its predecessor programs (Trustworthy Computing and/or Cyber Trust).

The purpose of this workshop is to provide individuals who have never received a SaTC award with tips and tools for navigating the NSF’s proposal review process, with a focus on SaTC’s goals, thereby increasing both the quality of their proposal submissions and, in turn, the number of proposals funded. To that end, this workshop will provide participants with opportunities to meet and network with industry mentors in addition to attend panels and sessions covering topics such as:

  • Crafting a Research Proposal Narrative
  • Research Project Development
  • Presentation Strategies
  • The Panel Review Process
  • Mock-Review Modules
  • Overview of Common Proposal Mistakes
  • …and more!

See the Call For Participants for more details on participation. Importantly, if selected to participate most (if not all) travel expenses to Washington, DC and GW will be reimbursed.


All events will take place at the George Washington University (GW) in Science and Engineering Hall (SEH), 800 22nd St NW, Washington, DC 20052. Directions by metro and driving are provided here.
