NSF CAREER Award Manual

NSF_CAREER_NEW_MANUAL

NSF runs several major funding programs, and a CAREER application is in many ways a typical NSF research grant proposal. However, there are some important aspects of the CAREER program that set it apart. The full name of the program is the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program, which reveals it to be a mechanism for the development of what NSF calls “teacher-scholars.” The goal is to support outstanding young junior faculty who show promise as lifelong contributors to the integration of education and research.
