The "Write Winning Grants" seminar is intended to help faculty members from any discipline (arts, humanities, STEM, biomedical sciences, and health) compete more successfully for external funding. The general session, "Write Winning Grants", is open to all full-time faculty members. Additionally in odd-numbered years, the OVPR offers a separate session in the spring specifically for faculty in the arts & humanities.
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.
