Career Awards

Early career awards are a strong endorsement of novel research and teaching ideas and a good sign of a promising career. We congratulate all of Clemson University’s current and former early-career awardees.

If you plan to make an application to one of the programs offering early career support, please consider reaching out to a colleague who has prepared and submitted a successful proposal for an award. Clemson faculty have won early career awards from the NSF, DOE, US Air Force, US Army, DARPA, Institute of Education Sciences and NASA. NSF honors received by Clemson University faculty include both the CAREER award and the PECASE award, the highest honor offered to scientists and engineers by the government of United States.
