How to Write a CAREER Proposal to the NSF
Friday, May 3, 2013 · Noon - 3 PM
This workshop builds on the material covered in Fundamentals workshop and includes methods for tailoring proposals to meet the specific requirements of the NSF’s CAREER Award program. NSF CAREER proposals are not simply research proposals written by junior faculty, but are instead “awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.” These awards are meant to support junior faculty members in the integration of research and education. The unique requirements of writing these proposals are emphasized in this workshop, along with strategies to write a compellingproposal.
