It is that season again, where NSF-CAREER awards are being announced left right and center. In my world, there are three in particular to celebrate:
- Dr. Julie Trenor, assistant professor in the Department of Science and Engineering Education at Clemson University, whose grant is titled "Influence of Social Capital on Under-Represented Engineering Students' Academic and Career Decisions"
- Dr. Demetra Evangelou, assistant professor in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University, whose grant is titled "Developmental Engineering: An Examination of Early Learning Experiences as Antecedents of Engineering Education"; and
- Dr. Debbie Chachra, assistant professor of Materials Science at Olin College, whose grant is titled "Exploring the Relationship Between Self-Efficacy and Project-Based Learning Among Engineering Students.
Awesome job, women!
Did you get a CAREER award? Share in the comments, so we can appreciate how awesome you are. :-)
Woot woot! Go Debbie!
Thanks, Alice! If anyone wants to read more about my project, the summary is here. Or feel free to drop me a line.
I received one in chemistry.
"CAREER: Discrepancies in raft size between cellular and model membranes: Solid-state NMR measurements of protein effect on lipid raft size"
Thanks for this post because I feel like I am not celebrating it enough. It is much easier to worry about publishing, but this is something to celebrate.
Congrats Megan, Debbie, Julie, Demetra and everyone else who received a career award. You are inspiring!
YAYAYAYAYAY Megan!!! You rock! Celebrate indeed!!!
