OVPR Proposal Development Seminar, "Write Winning Grant Proposals"
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is proud to present its fifth annual
proposal development seminar this Spring. The seminar 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. 7, 2016.
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.
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 eligible faculty who are planning to apply to agencies offering STEM Career development programs.
BIOMEDICAL AND HEALTH CAREER AWARDS
Friday, Jan. 8, 2016, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
This seminar is offered to faculty who are planning to apply to agencies offering health-related Career
development programs. Many biomedical and health career programs also offer awards to graduate students
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.
