What is the ECA?

The Early Career Academy (ECA) is a group of “early-career” researchers who "Dare to Make an Impact" at FAU and beyond. The Division of Research provides organized support to each cohort to aid in the development of their research careers.

A semester-long self-paced curriculum that allows you to devote as much time as you like to it each day while also giving you easy access to our team!

Some of the topics you will learn about are:

  • Writing fundamentals building up to proposal writing
  • Expanding your network of mentors and community partners
  • An overview of different Federal Agencies and funding mechanisms

Why Join:

The ECA is an amazing opportunity for early-career investigators to network with their peers, and to learn valuable lessons about finding mentors, writing grant proposals, navigating peer review, and identifying a compelling research niche.

How to Join:

The ECA kicks off at the beginning of every semester so be on the lookout for a registration form or feel free to reach out to proposaldevelopment@fau.edu for more information

In the past, the ECA has offered workshops on planning your research career, mentoring, networking, and statistical methodology. We have all this content archived. To review content, please join our ORD library Canvas course: http://canvas.fau.edu/enroll/E8ENDT
