Engaged Scholarship & Broader Impacts Events

2024 NSF Career Award--Proposal Development Events & Resources

Are you applying for an NSF CAREER award? We can help! The offices that comprise the Engaged Scholarship and Broader Impacts (ES/BI) Working Group help faculty develop the broader impacts of their proposals, as well as optimize related outreach and engaged scholarship activities. This spring, with support from the ES/BI Working Group, the Office of Research Strategy and Development (ORSD in OVPR) is organizing two events to help you develop your proposal for an NSF CAREER award (sponsor deadline: July 24):

  • April 4, 12pm-1pm Informational Workshop (Virtual), with a focus on Broader Impacts (Register by March 28).
  • OVPR-Run Mock Panel Week of June 24 (register by April 15; draft proposals due June 17).
