Research and Faculty Development Team Available to Help with NSF CAREER Proposals

March 14, 2018

The UI Office of Research and Economic Development's Research and Faculty Development Team (RFDT) offers customized assistance and guidance to faculty interested in writing a proposal to the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. 

The CAREER program is NSF's most prestigious award in support of early career 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. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply. 

Proposals are due to NSF in mid-July 2017. Faculty are encouraged to begin proposal preparation early.

RFDT will hold two informational meetings on preparing CAREER proposals. Faculty may also join via Zoom (see links below).

In addition, the NSF CAREER Coordinating Committee hosts a webinar to answer participants' questions about development and submission of proposals to the CAREER program. The webinar will give participants the opportunity to interact with members of the NSF-wide CAREER Coordinating Committee in a question-and-answer format. Register now for the NSF CAREER Program Webinar, 1-3 p.m. Eastern time May 15.
