NSF CAREER grant proposal workshop is April 17

ND EPSCoR is sponsoring a National Science Foundation CAREER grant proposal workshop on Wednesday, April 17,  in Swanson Hall, Room 10-12, 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (lunch will be provided). Presenters will be from The Implementation Group (TIG), a consulting firm from Washington, D.C. Attendance at this workshop does not mean one is required to submit a proposal.

More experienced proposal writers are also likely to find significant value in this workshop and are encouraged to attend, although preference will be given to new faculty. Registration is essential for planning workshop materials and lunch. Preference will be given to eligible faculty; however, others, including doctoral students and postdocs, are welcome to register and attend as long as there is room.

The Faculty Early CAREER Development (CAREER) Program is a competitive Foundation-wide program that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious early career awards in support of faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. CAREER proposals are limited to submission by tenure-track faculty and in the NSF-eligible disciplines. See http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503214 for more detailed information about the CAREER program.

To register for this workshop, email Carla.kellner@research.und.edu by April 12, 2013.
