From the National Science Foundation
April 21, 2000, Arlington, VA
Today, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, VA announces its plans to spend about $65 million to help develop faculty early in their career in science and engineering. The NSF estimates that between 200 to 300 awards will be funded by January 2001.
According to the NSF, these awards recognize and support the early career development activities of those faculty who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. The grants are among the most prestigious for new faculty.
Funding will be coordinated through the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. CAREER awardees are selected "on the basis of creative, integrative, and effective research and education career development plans that build a firm foundation for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and education."
