Write Winning Grant Proposals

  • October 14th Write Winning Grant Proposals, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
    • Dodd Research Center, Konover Auditorium, Storrs Campus

The “Write Winning Grant Proposals” seminar will focus on key principles and the fundamentals of successful grantsmanship, covering NSF, NIH, and USDA grants.   The seminar will benefit both new and established faculty who have not previously applied or who have applied without winning funding for these federal agencies.  Refreshments and lunch are included in registration.

 NIH/NSF Career Development Grant Seminars

Prior attendance to a Write Winning Grants seminar is a prerequisite to attend either of the Career seminars.  You may co-register for the above “Write Winning Grant Proposals” seminar to meet this requirement.

  • NIH Career Development, October 21st, 2016, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
    • Dodd Research Center, Konover Auditorium, Storrs Campus

A grant writing workshop entitled “How to Write Successful Career Development Award Proposals” is for NIH Career Development Award (CDA) candidates and their mentors. It emphasizes the “partnering” between candidate and mentor that is necessary for such proposals to be successful. The kinds of CDAs that are highlighted include the National Institutes of Health’s mentored K Awards, and NIH’s Ruth L. Kirschstein F32 National Research Service Award for individual postdoctoral fellows. Positioning for success in advance of writing the proposal, tips and strategies that help to assure a successful application, and principles/fundamentals applicable to any agency’s CDA are covered in this seminar.  Lunch will be provided after the seminar between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.

  • NSF Career, October 21st, 2016, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
    • Dodd Research Center, Konover Auditorium, Storrs Campus

A grant writing workshop entitled “How to Write Successful Career Development Award Proposal.”   The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to support faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students. CAREER Awards are particularly prestigious for junior faculty, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of how the application must be written, which is what this seminar covers.  Lunch will be provided before the seminar between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.
