UNH’s NSF CAREER “Counts” program begins with a November information session for eligible untenured, tenure-track faculty to assess readiness and appropriateness to apply for the prestigious NSF Faculty Early Career Development Program (link is external) with July deadlines.
Interested faculty apply in December to participate in the UNH “Counts” program consisting of 8 workshops and seminars from January through May, with UNH Chemistry Professor Richard Johnson as the faculty fellow. Research Development Office staff and guest speakers/ panelists also deliver content about the strategies for structuring and integrating research and education plans, assessment and evaluation, broader impacts, developing program officer relationships, peer review, and crafting ancillary documents.
Other “Counts” highlights include internal mentors, a day trip to NSF, a writing-only day in May, and external technical draft proposal reviews.
