This workshop will provide an opportunity for junior faculty to become acquainted with the NSF Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER). The CAREER Program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Dr. Eric Chitambar, a current CAREER recipient, will provide insight on how to craft a proposal and address frequently asked questions.

New Proposal Submission Requirements 

Grants.gov Workspace

Effective December 31, 2017, grants.gov will officially retire the legacy PDF application package as a method to apply for a federal grant.  Applicants will be required to submit proposals through a standard federal grants application process on grants.gov called Workspace.  Grants.gov Workspace is a shared, online environment designed to make applying for a federal grant as convenient as possible.  Forms can be completed within a web browser or downloaded individually and uploaded into Workspace.  PIs familiar with NIH ASSIST and NSF Fastlane will find the Workspace application comparable to those systems. 

Beginning September 1, 2017, all proposals submitted through grants.gov that allow the use of Workspace must be submitted via that system.  The funding opportunity announcement will indicate whether Workspace can be used for a particular funding opportunity.  OSPA will no longer support other submission methods for those proposals. 

If you are planning to submit a proposal via grants.gov workspace please contact ospa@siu.edu as soon as possible for registration and organization affiliation.  Researchers may contact ospa@siu.edu to schedule a brief overview of the Workspace system. 

Note, this does not apply to proposals submitted through the NSF Fastlane system or NIH ASSIST system.
