  • 2017 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop on April 3-4, 2017 in Portland, OR

    Sponsored by the NSF Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation, the 2017 NSF CAREER Proposal Writing Workshop will be held April 3-4, 2017 in Portland, Oregon.  The workshop will be co-hosted by Oregon State University, Kansas State University, and Texas A&M University.  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 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 has prepared.  Workshop participants are expected to read and review six CAREER proposals prior to the Workshop so that they can actively participate in mock panel reviews.  These mock review panels are designed as a realistic simulation of actual CAREER proposal review panels. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with current and previous NSF Program Officers. 


    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 (approximately 250 participants will be selected to attend this workshop), so early application is strongly recommended.  To provide sufficient time for interactions among participants and facilitators, mealtime activities will be an important activity on the agenda.  A workshop fee of $250 will be charged to help defray the cost of workshop meals and materials. 


    The application deadline is January 9, 2017. The application procedure and tentative agenda for the workshop can be found at:  http://www.ksu.edu/career.   Please note that every participant is required to submit a project summary of their CAREER proposal and an NSF style biosketch as part of the application package.
