About the series

The 2020 NSF ENG CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held March 31 - April 2, 2020, in Arlington, VA, just outside of Washington, DC. The proposal writing workshop aims to provide junior faculty who plan to submit a CAREER Award proposal to a program in the NSF’s Directorate for Engineering (ENG) with a CAREER proposal review experience and a forum in which they can interact with NSF Program Directors and recent NSF CAREER awardees.

Attendees of the 2020 NSF ENG CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will benefit from: 

  • Six mock proposal reviews by panels
  • Plenaries from engineering leaders
  • Focus sessions on time management and effective proposal writing
  • Guidance on the integration of education and research
  • Networking opportunities and industry-focused discussions
  • Interaction across disciplines and engineering schools nationwide

All activities for the 2020 NSF ENG CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott. Workshop participation is limited to 300 participants. Participants will be selected from those who submit completed applications. Applications will open in November 2019 and close on January 6, 2020.

About the NSF CAREER Program 
CAREER: 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 minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.
