Furthermore, beginning in 1997, the NSF will select up to 20 nominees from among the most meritorious first-year awardees supported by the CAREER program for the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). PECASE awards recognize outstanding scientists and engineers show exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of knowledge early in their careers. It is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. Government on scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers.
The application deadline for the CAREER program is July 22, 1997, significantly earlier than last year's deadline. Those interested in applying may find additional information on the NSF home page or the Career Program Announcement.
