Proposal Writing for a Mission Agency Young Investigator Early Career Award
Who Should Attend
This course is primarily designed for assistant professors – but will also be useful to postdoctoral fellows and senior graduate students – who plan to apply for a Young Investigator/Early Career Award from a Mission Agency (emphasis on DOD, DOE, NASA and Department of Education).
Eligibility for the programs requires either a limited time since receipt of PhD (5-10 years depending on agency) or since appointment to a tenure-track position (5-7 years depending on agency).
The DARPA, DTRA and DOE opportunities do NOT require US citizen, national, or permanent resident.
The workshop will provide tips on how to structure a successful Young Investigator/Faculty proposal, the amount of funding available, guidance toward topic selection, and the anticipated proposal due dates.
