OVPR Proposal Development Workshop, "Write Winning Grant Proposals"
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is proud to present its fifth annual
proposal development workshop this Spring. The workshop is intended to help faculty members of all
experience levels compete more successfully for external funding. As in previous years, the OVPR
will offer separate sessions for science faculty and for arts & humanities faculty.
The science section (intended for faculty primarily interested in applying to the NSF, NIH, Dept. of Energy, etc.) will take place on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015.
The arts & humanities section (intended for faculty primarily interested in applying to the NEH, Department of Education, private foundations, etc.) will take place on Tuesday, April 14, 2015.
New NSF and NIH CAREER workshops
This year, the OVPR will present two half-day sessions for faculty who are planning to apply to the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program or the National Institutes of Health career programs which include K-awards and F-series fellowship awards. The workshops will take place on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015; the NSF workshop will meet from 8:00 a.m. to noon and the NIH workshop will meet from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The NIH CAREER workshop is open to faculty and their mentors who should also attend. Additionally, graduate students and post-doctoral students may also attend since the workshop will provide information on the F-series fellowship awards.
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 workshop for science faculty, either this year or in a previous year;
- Are eligible for the NSF CAREER program ( click here for eligibility information).
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.
