About the series
The 2021 NSF Engineering CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held VIRTUALLY April 21-23, 2021, from 1:00PM to 5:00PM ET each day. The workshop aims to provide junior faculty who plan to submit a CAREER proposal to a program in the NSF 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 2021 NSF ENG CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will benefit from:
- Mock proposal reviews by panels
- Interactions with ENG Directorate Program Directors
- Focus sessions with recent CAREER awardees
- Interaction across disciplines and engineering schools nationwide
All activities for the 2021 NSF ENG CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be conducted virtually. The Mock Panel Review session is limited to 300 participants; however, all other sessions will be open. Mock Panel participants will be selected from those who submit completed applications.

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.
