Grant-writing program offered for faculty planning to apply for 2019 National Science Foundation CAREER Award

The Office of Faculty Development invites faculty members who plan to apply for a 2019 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award to participate in a grant-writing program co-coordinated with the Writing Resource Center (WRC).

The program will provide a wide range of support resources for proposal development, and will conclude in June with proposal submission to a mock panel of experienced NSF reviewers. Participants also will receive individual access to a WRC faculty consultant.

Program facilitators are:

  • Sarah de Swart, director of faculty development;
  • Joseph F. Koonce, professor emeritus in the Department of Biology;
  • Megan Jewell, director of the Writing Resource Center and instructor of English; and
  • John Wiehl, English/SAGES Program faculty member and lecturer of English.

The program will begin with an introductory meeting Jan. 25 from 12:45 to 2 p.m. in Thwing Center’s Cleveland Room.

RSVP for the kickoff meeting on CampusGroups by Jan. 18.
