OVPR Proposal Development Workshop
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is proud to present its fourth annual proposal development workshop this January. The workshop is intended to help faculty members of all experience levels compete more successfully for external funding.
The workshop will take place Thursday, January 9 and Friday, January 10, 2014 (location TBA). Faculty will attend just one of the two days depending on their academic areas and target funding agencies. Faculty in the sciences (those primarily interested in applying to the NSF, NIH, Dept. of Energy, etc.) will attend the session on Thursday, January 9. Faculty in the arts & humanities (those primarily interested in applying to the NEH, Department of Education, private foundations, etc.) will attend the session on Friday, January 10.
The workshop is 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. Baylor staff members and students (including postdocs) may tentatively register, but they will only be allowed to attend if seats are still available after all faculty members have been accommodated.
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.
