2013 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop
Sponsored by the NSF Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation, the 2013 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held on April 8 and 9, 2013, at University of South Florida.
This workshop will cover the basics of CAREER proposal writing and review. It will include presentations by NSF Program Officers and recent CAREER awardees, a mock panel review using actual awarded and declined CAREER proposals, and a feedback session where small groups will review and discuss the draft CAREER proposal project summaries that each participant prepared.
Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with current and previous NSF Program Officers. The workshop will be hands-on, requiring that all participants read and review six CAREER proposals, actively participate in the mock panel reviews, which are designed as a realistic simulation of actual CAREER proposal review panels, and provide a draft copy of the project summary page that they intend to submit as part of their own CAREER proposal. In order to facilitate the mock panel reviews and the review of each participant’s project summary page, attendance is limited to 150. Data from previous workshops suggest that the success rate of the participants is considerably higher than the overall NSF average. Correspondingly, this workshop attracts far more applicants than we can admit, so early application is strongly recommended.
In order to provide sufficient time for these important sessions and to encourage networking among participants and facilitators, mealtime activities will be an important component of the agenda, and the workshop fee of $250 will be charged to help defray the cost of workshop meals and materials.
The application deadline is January 1, 2013. The application procedure and tentative agenda for the workshop can be found at http://aries.imse.ksu.edu/nsf/nsfcareer2013/main.htm.
