NSF Workshop for Directorate for STEM Education (EDU) CAREER Applicants


The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from early-career faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented populations, and persons with disabilities to apply. 

EVENT: The workshop is intended to provide guidance and mentorship to prospective CAREER applicants to the NSF Directorate for STEM Education. It will serve as an opportunity for participants to gain a better understanding of the program, including eligibility requirements, the application process, and outcomes of past CAREER awardees, and for participants to interact with other applicants, former awardees, and NSF program officers.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Potential CAREER applicants to the NSF EDU Directorate, including early-career faculty who conduct or plan to conduct research in STEM education. Detailed information on program eligibility generally can be found here. EDU-specific guidance regarding CAREER applications can be found here.
