SDSU CAREER Cohort (2023)

Early career faculty planning to submit an application to the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development Program (aka the NSF CAREER) are welcome to join a cohort of SDSU faculty for accountability and support.

The program, led by the Division of Research, guides faculty from concept to submission, starting in the fall through submission in late July. Members can enlist an external consultant for proposal review, in addition to guidance on application components unique to a competitive CAREER proposal. 

For more information, contact Jessica Andrews, grant development specialist, in the Division of Research.
