Tigers ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series
Call for Proposals for Speakers to visit in Fall 2017

Project Overview

The Tigers ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series offers the unique opportunity to showcase the breadth and wealth of diversity found among scientists in the STEM fields. Through this NSF-supported speaker series, applicants are encouraged to invite scientists of renown from their disciplines that will offer perspectives on not only their research but on their career journeys, which can be shared with early career faculty and students in the STEM disciplines. In addition, the Tigers ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series supports career development opportunities for Clemson faculty by providing funding support for them to host nationally recognized scholars for a one- or two-day visit to Clemson. Applications are solicited from tenured or tenure-track faculty in disciplines eligible to receive funding from the NSF. Each applicant should partner with a tenured, faculty co-host, who will assist with planning the Distinguished Speaker’s visit. Collaborative proposals among multiple hosts are encouraged.
