In-Person Meeting Postponed

With our stakeholders' well-being and safety in mind, the in-person OSEP Project Directors’ Conference will be postponed to 2021. We will miss seeing everyone in person this year, but considering the present circumstances, we believe this is the best decision to make.

If you submitted a proposal to present, you will have the option to resubmit for next year’s conference.  

OSEP Remarks and Program Area Check-Ins

During the dates of the planned conference (July 20-22, 2020), a series of virtual calls will take place to ensure all grantees have updated and relevant information to inform their work. Please continue to hold these dates on your calendar.

These calls will take place according to the schedule below; information about registration and how to connect will be shared soon. All grantees are expected to attend the OSEP Remarks and any Program Area Check-In Calls for which they have a grant.
