NSF Career Development Award Proposal Workshop

Friday, April 3, 2015
1:00pm – 4:00pm

Storrs Campus
Konover Auditorium, Dodd Center

A grant writing workshop entitled “How to Write Successful Career Development Award Proposal” lead by Grant Writer’s Seminars and Workshops, LLC. The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to create faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students to learn better. It is a very prestigious award. Acquisition of a CAREER Award is particularly distinguishing in the developing career of an assistant professor, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of how the application must be written, which is what this seminar teaches. Participation is limited and requires approval from your respective Dean or Associate Dean on the Research Deans Council. The seminars are being funded by the Office of the Vice President for Research partnering with the schools and colleges.

PREREQUISITE: To attend this career workshop, you must have attended either the Write Winning Grant Proposals workshop held on March 21, 2014 or registered for one during March 2015 since they are prerequisites for the career course.
