NSF CAREER Program Webinar

About this event

The NSF CAREER Coordinating Committee hosts a webinar to answer participants' questions about development and submission of proposals to the NSF Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER). The webinar will give participants the opportunity to interact with members of the NSF CAREER Coordinating Committee in a question-and-answer format. Because the current CAREER program solicitation (NSF 15-555) describes the necessary information about the next competition in July 2016, this webinar will not include a program overview presentation.

In preparation for the webinar, participants are strongly encouraged to consult material available on-line concerning the CAREER program. In particular, the CAREER program web page has a wealth of current information about the program, including a link to slides from a webinar presentation about the CAREER program. Additionally, there is a video of a live presentation about the CAREER program at an NSF Grants Conference held in November 2015.

How to Submit Questions

Participants may submit questions about CAREER proposal development and submission in advance of and during the webinar by sending e-mail to:  careerwebinarqs@nsf.gov

Please note that questions requiring determinations of eligibility for the CAREER program will not be addressed during the webinar.  Other questions about the CAREER program that are not covered during the webinar should be directed to the appropriate NSF Divisional contact shown on the web page http://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/career/contacts.jsp
