The National Science Foundation (NSF) has published the revised solicitation (14-532) for its Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. Depending on the applicable division, proposals are due July 21–23, 2014.

The CAREER Program, one of the NSF’s most prestigious awards, supports junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. The CAREER program provides a minimum of $400,000 over five years. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from junior faculty at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.
