Silvers Thanked for Contributions to NSF
Dr. Dennis King received a letter from the National Science Foundation expressing their appreciation for the valuable contributions made by Pamela Silvers for the Advanced Technological Education Program.
Dr. Carter noted that the Foundation’s staff makes difficult decisions in funding grant proposals. The individual advice of scientists, technicians, engineers, mathematicians, and educators is essential to making informed choices. They provide valuable peer advice that helps shape funded projects and assists unsuccessful proposers in refining their ideas for possible future submissions. Suggestions contributed by panel members also influence program policies.
