Home page

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF)'s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program, Quality Education for Minorities (QEM) Network has provided technical assistance to Junior Faculty at Minority Institutions and Minority Junior Faculty at non-minority institutions to increase their participation and competitiveness in the CAREER Program.

Through the CAREER Program, NSF is seeking to sustain and strengthen the Nation’s science, mathematics, and engineering
capabilities and to promote the use of those capabilities in service to society. In particular, CAREER supports the early career development activities of those teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. The minimum CAREER award, including indirect costs, totals $400,000 over a five-year period, except in the case of the Biological Sciences where the minimum request must be for $500,000 over a five-year period (approximately $100,000/year). Cost-sharing is not required or allowed.

To be eligible to submit a proposal to the CAREER Program, a faculty member must: (1) hold a doctoral degree in a field of science or engineering supported by NSF; (2) be untenured but on the tenure track as an assistant professor at her/his institution by October 1, 2014; (3) have not previously received a CAREER award; and (4) have not competed more than two times in the NSF CAREER Program. Applicants must be actively engaged in research and teaching.
