NSF CAREER Award Workshop

In this video, from a workshop held in June 2014, winners of NSF CAREER (Faculty Early Career Development Program) awards talk about the program and share insight in how to apply for the awards. The workshop was organized into two parts: an overview of the program, and a panel discussion with a question and answer period. The panel discussion covered do's and don'ts of interacting with programs managers before and after the award, lessons learned from unsuccessful applications, educational and outreach components and how those feed into all future NSF applications, and how the CAREER awards shaped the panel members careers.
