The Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) sponsored by the National Science Foundation is a prestigious award open to early-career faculty who do not yet have tenure and who teach and do research in any area of science funded by NSF. Competition for the award is both fierce, and limited to a total of three tries per investigator, so it’s vital to start off with a strong proposal.

The Office of Contracts and Grants has prepared a Proposal Checklist and Synopsis of Solicitation Requirements for the 2015 NSF CAREER program. This document includes:

  • Elibility Requirements
  • Due Dates
  • Budget Information
  • Restrictions
  • Required Elements

Our Sponsor Resources page provides additional proposal development tools and links for several sponsors.
