Preparation of Career Proposals to the National Science Foundation (5/13)

Update: Note new date and location.

“Preparation of Career Proposals to the National Science Foundation” will be held Friday, May 13, noon-3 p.m. in the Meyerhoff Chemistry Building, Room 272.

This workshop builds on the material covered in workshop #020 and includes methods for tailoring proposals to meet the specific requirements of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (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 compelling proposal.

The workshop will be presented by Ralph M. Pollack, associate vice president for research.

A light lunch will be served. Register soon as space is limited.

RSVP by Tuesday, May 10, to dianem@umbc.edu
