Workshops and Support

The Office of Grants offers workshops on techniques and resources for crafting competitive applications. Topics include:

  • Introduction to grant seeking
  • Instructional sessions on pre award, post award and grant management
  • Targeted workshops for specific departments and concentrations

Workshops are scheduled throughout the year based on faculty interest. If you would like to attend one, or have an additional topic to suggest, please contact Mary Rizzo.

Additionally, faculty members are encouraged to have peer resources available to assist with proposal development. While our office critiques proposals on the mechanics, structure, and form required on a per funding agency basis, it is tremendously helpful to have a peer read your proposal for ideas and content.

Because many review panels are made up of readers from different disciplines, it is useful to have someone outside your department read your proposal as well as having it read by someone who works in your area. Those outside your discipline will be particularly well suited to pointing out where you've made assumptions about common knowledge, relied on jargon, etc.
