ECE Early Career Awards

The National Science Foundation CAREER (formerly known as the Presidential Young Investigator Award) and PECASE (Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers) awards are the foundation's most highly-esteemed awards for junior faculty members. They were established to recognize and support the early career development activities of those teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. Recipients are selected on the basis of creative career-development plans that effectively integrate research and education within the context of the missions of their institutions.

The YIA (Young Investigator Award) Programs support faculty research and encourage faculty teaching and research careers. Recipients have typically held their graduate degrees for fewer than five years. There are a variety of agencies which honor junior faculty members through YIA programs. This list includes, but is not limited to, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFSOR), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Army Research Office (ARO) and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
