OVPR Proposal Development Seminar, "Write Winning Grant Proposals"
The "Write Winning Grants" seminar is intended to help faculty members of all experience levels compete more successfully for external funding. Beginning in 2016, the OVPR will present a general "Write Winning Grants" seminar for all faculty each year. In odd-numbered years, there will also be a second session aimed at faculty in the arts & humanities.
The next "Write Winning Grants" seminar will take place on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016.
Early Investigator Career Award Seminars
Many federal agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health,
Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Agency for Healthcare Research, and the
Centers for Disease Control to name a few, offer awards for new investigators who are beginning
their research career. Each federal agency has specific eligibility criteria for the award, and
the criteria differ depending upon the agency. The early investigator Career seminars are intended
to help young investigators successfully compete for a Career award.
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHEMATICS (STEM) CAREER AWARDS
Friday, Jan. 8, 2016, 8:00 a.m. to noon.

This seminar is offered to faculty who are planning to apply to agencies offering health-related Career

and post-doctoral scholars. Thus, graduate students and post-doctoral scholars seeking information on
available awards are also encouraged to attend.
The science and arts & humanities sessions are open to all full-time Baylor faculty members. Seats are limited and preference will be given to new Baylor faculty members (those hired in the prior 12 months) and to tenure-track faculty members.
The Career sessions are limited to faculty who:
- Have attended the OVPR's proposal development seminar for science faculty, either this year or in a previous year;
- Are eligible for the Careeer award based upon the criteria established by the agency.
The workshop presenter is Dr. Peg AtKisson of Grant Writers' Seminars and Workshops. AtKisson, a neuroscientist by training, is the former director of proposal development at Tufts University and has helped individual faculty members and research teams secure millions of dollars in competitive funding.
