2022 NSF Engineering CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop

About the series

The 2022 NSF ENG CAREER Workshop will be held VIRTUALLY May 11-13, 2022from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern each day. The Workshop aims to provide junior faculty who plan to submit a CAREER Award proposal to a program in 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 2022 NSF ENG CAREER Workshop will benefit from:

  • Mock proposal reviews by panel
  • Interactions with END Directorate Program Directors
  • Focus sessions with recent CAREER awardees
  • Interactions across disciplines and engineering schools nationwide

All activities for the 2022 NSF ENG CAREER 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.

The deadline for applications is March 28, 2022. Visit the workshop website for details and instructions.

Submissions are encouraged from junior faculty at Non-R1 Institutions, Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), and Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs). Women and under-represented minority junior faculty are also encouraged to apply.

About the NSF CAREER Program 
CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the NSF'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.

About the Directorate for Engineering (ENG) 
Investments in engineering research and education are critical building blocks for the nation's future prosperity. Engineering breakthroughs address national challenges, such as smart manufacturing, resilient infrastructure and sustainable energy systems. Engineering also brings about new opportunities in areas ranging from quantum technologies to prosthetic devices. 

Research funded by the NSF's Directorate for Engineering (ENG) has enriched the understanding of natural systems, advanced electronics, fortified the nation's infrastructure and introduced the exciting possibilities of engineering to the next generation.
