Making Your NSF CAREER Proposal Count

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 National Science Foundation’s prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) which has submission deadlines in July.

Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER)

The program consists of 8 workshops and seminars held from January through May. Research Development Office staff, Faculty Fellow Richard Johnson (Chemistry), and guest speakers/ panelists 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 other proposal components.  

Other “Counts” highlights include internal mentors, a day trip to NSF, a writing-only day in May, and external technical draft proposal reviews.

Interested faculty apply in December to participate in the UNH “Counts” program.
