Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals (NSF-Focused)
March 4 2015 at 1:30 PM
Welcome Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer this research career development award writing seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus to conduct this seminar presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar.   The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to create teacher-scholars – faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students to learn better. It is a very prestigious award.  Acquisition of a CAREER Award is particularly distinguishing in the developing career of an assistant professor, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of what NSF is trying to accomplish with the award, i.e., the purpose of the award, which is what this seminar teaches. Seminar information Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals (NSF-focused) March 4, 2015 – 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren Registration deadline: February 20, 2015   The fee for seminar is $50 and may be paid by personal check or through a department index account transfer.
