Departmental Letter of Support for NSF CAREER Award Proposals

Guidance for the Departmental Support Letter for NSF CAREER Award proposals

This is a very important letter of support required for all CAREER proposals. There are 3 documents in this section.  The first, the "unsuccessful" letter follows a template for such letters to the point that only the names and topics are changed.  It comes off as generic and *not compelling*.  Letters 2 and 3 are for candidates who got the award.  These use pseudonyms, but you will be able to compare the unsuccessful letter to the one the subsequent year when she got the award.
