Internal Funding Opportunities Info Session

Date: TBD

In this info session, we will discuss the different types of internal funding opportunities administered by the Office of Research.  We will address questions about which type of grant to apply for depending on your project's scope and goals, eligibility, and more.  

 
NSF Career Award Workshop

Date: TBD

This is a peer workshop for Early Career faculty to learn more about applying for the NSF Career Grant. We will be joined by recent awardees who will share their experiences, insights, and answer questions.  This is an opportunity to ask questions and get advice on deciding when to apply, how to develop your proposal and other aspects of the program. 

The NSF Career Award Workshop is a pre-cursor to our popular NSF Career Proposal Writing Group, which works with faculty from planning stages to proposal submission.  Lehigh faculty have an excellent track record for receiving Career grants; those who participated in the proposal writing group were more likely to be successful in receiving this award.
