AGU 2023 Annual Meeting Early-Career Committee Town Hall: Successful Proposal Writing for Early-Career Scientists in Atmospheric Sciences

Early-career scientists, including students, postdoctoral researchers, and other scientists at the early stages of their careers as faculty members or professional researchers, comprise a large and important portion of the atmospheric sciences community. Crucial skills for their success are knowledge of the scientific funding process and the ability to write winning proposals, which requires forming productive collaborations and finding support from their colleagues, mentors, institutions, and other means.This 60-minute panel discussion will provide guidance for early-career scientists on these topics. The panel will consist of program managers from various U.S. funding agencies. The panelists will present tips on how early-career researchers can form collaborations and seek support so that they write successful proposals in a time-efficient manner. The audience will be able to ask their own questions to the panel.
