NSF Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) Dear Colleague Letter Encouraging CAREER Proposal Submissions

National Science Foundation Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) recently issued a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) encouraging eligible members of the STEM education research community to submit proposals to the National Science Foundation’s [Faculty Early] CAREER [Development] program (NSF 20-084).

EHR invests strategically in research to understand STEM learning and education. Supporting early-career investigators is a crucial element of this investment across our programs.

The CAREER Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty (and eligible investigators at non-degree-granting organizations, such as museums, observatories, or research labs) who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.

If you are interested in applying for this funding opportunity, please start a routing sheet as soon as possible. As a reminder, proposals must be completed and submitted to OSRP at least 2 business days prior to the deadline set by the sponsor.  If you have any questions, please contact OSRP.
