Join us for a presentation from Monica Kessel, USU College of Engineering Grand Development Manager, to learn how to create a successful Early Career Award! Presentation will be followed by individual meetings.
More about Monica: As a Grant Development Manager at Utah State University, Monica has over 6 years of experience helping faculty develop successful proposals for major funders such as the NSF, Department of Energy, various Department of Defense agencies, NASA, NIH, and Department of Education among others. She has worked with faculty to develop unique and responsive proposals for their early career awards. Some recent awards include multiple NSF CAREERs, an NSF PECASE, and two ONR Young Investigator Program awards. She will share some common characteristics among the funders in Early Career opportunities, provide suggestions for organization and format, intellectual merit, broader impacts and will provide tips for time management and “early conversations” for developing an effective early-career proposal. For the discussion, the primary focus will be NSF CAREER proposals, but other opportunities will be discussed as well.
