Part I. General Preparation
ORD will organize a panel of recent awardees to share the highlights of their process (successful and unsuccessful). ORD Broader Impacts specialist facilitates discussion including the following points: the different between CAREER grants and regular NSF applications; a proposal timeline; choosing the right directorate; advice on framing objectives and other grantsmanship relevant for CAREER; education plans; broader impacts, and other non “Intellectual Merit” parts of the proposal (how to frame collaborations in the narrative, tips for the chair’s letter).
Part II. Mock Review Panel (Optionally with an outside facilitator.)
ORD organizes materials for attendees to review and judge. Materials are prior submissions from a variety of fields, including, when appropriate, two applications from the same applicant, one unsuccessful and one successful for the same project. Attendees review the materials in advance and come prepared to discuss in small.
These workshops are held on an on-demand basis. Click here to request.
