The NHERI Summer Institute will be held in June 29 - July 1 2020 at the University of Texas in San Antonio (UTSA) Downtown Campus. K-12 educators, engineers, and researchers who want to learn more about the Natural Hazards Engineering Research (NHERI) community are invited to apply. Participants will learn about:
All participants—early career professionals and faculty, K-12 educators and administrators, and established professionals and faculty—are welcome to attend. We are especially looking for participants interested in multi-disciplinary research and collaboration between experimental sites.
Preliminary schedule of events:
During the three days, participants will have opportunities to meet with NHERI PIs, NHERI experimental site representatives, K-12 teachers, and a representative from the National Science Foundation (NSF). This creates a platform to discuss research grant proposal ideas and potential partnerships.
The grant covers travel expenses for a limited number of early career faculty members (i.e., non-tenured professors). Associate faculty members are invited to apply, however, preference will be given to early career faculty members. International scholars are welcome to apply early to secure approval of travel funds prior to the event. Local K-12 educators will also receive a stipend for participating. International travel will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis as travel funding allows.
The deadline for applying is March 31, 2020, at 11:59pm Central Time.
