NSF CAREER Awards

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) is a Foundation-wide activity that supports early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or university. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should lay the groundwork for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. This page includes a list of recent NSF CAREER Awards from the Civil, Mechanical, and Manufactuing Innovation.
