The NSPN Professional Development Fund’s aim is to provide financial support to individual NSPN Members to pursue opportunities that will enhance their professional network and develop their science policy, advocacy, diplomacy and communication skills. 

Awards may be used for a broad array of professional development opportunities within these areas. Examples of reasonable requests include, but are not limited to, attending a conference or workshop (registration fees, transportation, and housing), books, courses, trainings, or other professional development supplies. 

Conferences & Trainings that have already been approved can be found here; however, this is not considered an extensive list of all possible training opportunities. If an event or resource you want to apply the award towards is not listed here provide a justification in the application for how this opportunity will fulfill the mission of the NSPN Professional development fund.
