The Office of Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce additional enhancements to the OSP dropbox for electronic SF424 grant applications to grants.gov. The link to access the OSP dropbox is OSP Drop Box for Electronic Submissions to Grants.gov . The revised OSP dropbox user guide can be found at OSP Dropbox Quick Submission Guide. New enhancements to the dropbox include:
The attribute page has been modified to prompt the user to create a record and then upload the files. When the proposal record is created the attribute page is refreshed with the comment “Submit Successful*” with a footnote to continue to upload files (“*Please continue on to the Upload Files section and attach your proposal documents”).
Once the proposal record is created, the Upload file tab is now used to upload the proposal documents.
The upload file history can now be viewed using the “File History” section. This allows users to verify that the upload was successful.
If you have any questions regarding the new OSP dropbox functionality, please contact your OSP federal officer or email@example.com.

The NSF awards CAREER research grants to new faculty at universities who are at the rank of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) in any of the broad science and social science disciplines that are eligible for NSF grants.
UAB’s training will be led by former NSF CAREER awardee David Hilton (Department of Physics), with support from current awardees Ragib Hasan (Department of Computer and Information Sciences, Eugenia Kharlampieva (Department of Chemistry), and Karolina Mukhtar (Department of Biology). The three-session training program will walk applicants through the process of applying for and winning prestigious CAREER Awards from the NSF. All UAB faculty are invited to attend.
Sessions will be held from 12:00-1:00 PM on March 13, April 10, and May 8. Sessions build from each other, so attendance at all three is highly recommended. Dates and locations are as follows:

April 10 and May 8 sessions - Heritage Hall Room 500
Questions may be directed to Dr. David Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org
