NSF Career Proposal Writing Workshop 2012
NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop
May 3, 2012
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 P.M
Kent Student Center, Room 316
This one-day workshop sponsored by the Division of Research and Sponsored Programs offers a unique opportunity to learn about the extramural funding process, proposal development, submission, and peer reviews. Although the workshop’s focus will be on the CAREER solicitation of the National Science Foundation, the information and discussions will be very pertinent to grant applications regarding other NSF initiatives and other federal agencies.
Presenters for the workshop have extensive experience in proposal writing, review, and performance of research funded by extramural grants. Satyen Kumar, one of the instructors, has served as an NSF program director for three years and will offer insight into the aspects that make a proposal strong.
Highlights of the workshop include:
- Information about NSF programs
- How to Communicate with Program Directors
- Specific requirements for CAREER proposal
- Techniques to write winning proposals
- What are Intellectual Merit and Broader Impact?
- Developing strategies for success
- Avoiding common and fatal mistakes
- Understanding reviewers’ critiques and how to benefit from them
Extended discussions will follow presentations and the participants will:
- Have an opportunity to discuss specific questions/situations
- Receive two sample proposals to review and submit reports
- Participate in simulated review panel to understand the process, what is important to the reviewers, program directors, and the grant agency
We encourage you to share your proposals for the simulated panel review. Please email proposals to: firstname.lastname@example.org
