Presented by: 

Lucy Deckard is President of Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, which is a consulting firm dedicated to helping universities and faculty develop the skills they need to successfully compete for research funding.  She has worked with scores of faculty over the last 13 years to help them write successful NSF CAREER proposals.  She has also worked with faculty to analyze reviews from previous submissions and revise and resubmit their CAREER proposals, which were often funded. In the process, she has seen what reviewers are looking for, what works, what doesn’t, and what common mistakes should be avoided.
