The Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Development (OSP) is excited to host a new virtual NSF CAREER Peer-to-Peer Workshop Series.

Program Overview

The workshops are open to Cornell Assistant Professors who plan to submit an NSF CAREER proposal this July 2023. There will be three sessions, all taking place via Zoom. While attendance at all sessions is not required, we recommend attending the May session if you would like to participate in a June or July peer-to-peer session. You are welcome to join both the June and July peer-to-peer sessions or may attend only one.

During this session, we will review a sample of successful CAREER proposals and discuss potential tactics to use in your proposal. While not required, attending the May session is recommended if you would like to participate in either the June or July sessions.

Session 2: Peer-to-Peer Workshopping

Tuesday, June 20th, at 10:00-11:00 AM ET

In this session, you will exchange feedback with a faculty peer NSF CAREER applicant. You will be paired with one to two colleagues from a similar discipline (after submitting your draft by June 13th). During the workshop, pairs will discuss their feedback and brainstorm how to further strengthen their proposals. Toward the end of the hour, we will reconvene as a group and discuss any questions you might have. You can attend both June and July workshops or join only one.

Session 3: Peer-to-Peer Workshopping

Tuesday, July 11th, at 2:00-3:00 PM ET

In this session, you will exchange feedback with a faculty peer NSF CAREER applicant. You will be paired with one to two colleagues from a similar discipline (after submitting your FINAL draft by July 5th). During the workshop, pairs will discuss their feedback and brainstorm how to further strengthen their proposals. Toward the end of the hour, we will reconvene as a group and discuss any questions you might have. You can attend both June and July workshops or join only one.
