Reminder: NSF CAREER Proposals

If you are applying for an NSF CAREER award and if you finish a complete draft by June 26, mail to vcredadmin@ucr.edu, and we'll hold a panel and review it on July 6 and get you feedback by July 7. Also RED will send you $1000 in a research fund as incentive for finishing early.


Note:   If you are resubmitting, please also provide a copy of your prior proposal, the reviews, and a short discussion of how you modified the proposal in response to the reviews.
