The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a half-day workshop on How to Write an NSF CAREER Award Proposal for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on November 29, 2017. OVPR is sponsoring the cost to bring Dr. Peg AtKisson of AtKisson Training Group (ATG) to campus. Attendance at the Instruction in Proposal Writing seminar on November 28, 2017 is highly recommended as a pre-requisite for this seminar.

An NSF CAREER award application is more than an NSF Standard Grant with an education plan added in. Highly competitive proposals integrate the research and education plans. This seminar will focus on both why and how to create a plan that results in a competitive proposal, and workshop some of the participants’ education plans.

Registration is limited! Registration and requested information needs to be completed by November 13, 2017.
