NSF CAREER Grant Preparation Program

This section of the Research Gateway is under development. We appreciate your patience as we further develop this content.

Overview

The National Science Foundation (NSF) offers the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program annually. The Program is a NSF-wide activity that offers prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars. UA’s Research Development Services (RDS) offers a guided program to potential applicants and interested parties that provides an overview of the NSF CAREER Program as well as proposal development assistance to those that choose to submit a full CAREER proposal. The RDS program is available for UA faculty at no-cost.

Submission deadlines for 2019 are July 17, 2019 for BIO, CISE, and EHR directorates; July 18, 2019 for ENG directorate; and July 19, 2019 for GEO, MPS, and SBE directorates. View solicitation 17-537

  • November 28, 2018: Broader Impacts & CAREER Education Plan

During this session, we will present best practices for the Education Plan as well as differentiate the Education Plan from the Broader Impacts section. Participants will leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of the general NSF Broader Impacts review requirements as well as a foundational knowledge of the CAREER Education Plan. Although this presentation is targeted towards faculty interested in the NSF CAREER program, the workshop is open to anyone (faculty, students, staff) affiliated with UA.
