Writing a successful National Science Foundation CAREER proposal requires clear articulation of long-term research and education goals that are cohesive and well integrated. Kelvin Chu, an Iowa State federal relations consultant and former NSF program director, will offer an overview of best practices for NSF CAREER submissions and answer questions about the submission process.

The goal of the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Program is to help promising researchers "build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research."

Recent CAREER grant awardees from Iowa State will share their experiences from the proposal development process, including their plans for broader impacts, evaluation and other program requirements. This workshop will be most beneficial for third- or fourth-year faculty who have begun to establish their research interests.
