The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) will hold a workshop from 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019, focused on developing grant proposals for opportunities offered to early-career researchers. The workshop will be held in Room 450, DuBourg Hall.
The National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and several other funders offer research opportunities for early-career investigators. These programs have specific requirements that differ from programs open to all investigators.
The workshop is appropriate for faculty members who have identified viable research projects and intend to submit proposals to the coming year’s deadlines. This introductory workshop will be followed by sessions that cover diverse aspects of early career proposals, including specific program criteria; use of concept and logic maps to develop a research overview; strategies for contacting a program director; specific proposal components; review criteria; and key proposal flaws and mistakes.
An internal review panel will be scheduled for May 2019 to evaluate draft proposals in advance of submission.
Participants are advised to read the appropriate program description or solicitation and to understand the definition of ‘early career investigator’ before signing up for the workshop.
