This forum on writing successful NSF Career awards was unique among the many grant-writing workshops at UM. First, it was unusual in the breadth of its sponsorship: The College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences and SEEDS. Second, and more important, it focused on only one type of grant, the NSF Career awards, for which only junior faculty are eligible (click the link below for eligibility details), thus giving more pertinent advice to those interested in writing such a grant. In the forum, four faculty who had received NSF CAREER awards in the past each spoke for ten minutes and then answered questions on what elements are important to success. Click here for resources from the workshopincluding PowerPoint presentations and links.
