Considering applying or (reapplying) for an NSF CAREER Award?   In addition to the recent Faculty Panel, the Office of Research Development (ORD) offers the following workshops and other resources:

Workshops include

  • Sounding Board/Mock Review of Overview and Objectives – (April 2018)
  • Mock Review of Overview and Objectives (June 2018)

Tufts faculty with experience serving on NSF CAREER review panels will review 1- to 2-page drafts of participants’ Overview and Objectives for CAREER proposal in a small group setting (usually 3 or 4 applicants, 2 reviewers, and ORD staff member.) Attend one or both – ideally you might use April as a chance for initial feedback on your ideas and June as a chance for review of a more developed draft of your Overview and Objectives. But attending either session by itself is fine too!

***Please complete doodle polls for your workshop availability by March 16th to allow best possible fit between applicant and reviewer areas of expertise***
