Research Development Support for NSF Faculty Career Development Program (CAREER)
The NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is an NSF-wide activity that offers among the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of junior (un-tenured) 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. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from junior faculty members at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.
This page contains resources, tools, and guides to assist Mason faculty with development of NSF CAREER proposals. Any faculty members interested in proposing to NSF for a CAREER award are strongly encouraged to attend the Mason CAREER workshop (Enroll HERE) and participate in the subsequent mentoring and grant review process.
