Last year, Academic Research Funding Strategies LLC conducted a seven-session class for our junior faculty focused on grantsmanship skills. Although many commented positively on the class, the class size was limited to 20 faculty and it therefore had little overall impact at helping our faculty at large learn more about winning grants.
This year, we've decided to do the program differently and have split it into four parts. The first part is a tutorial on how to work within NC State, the second part is a series of four panel (NSF, NIH, DOE and DoD) discussions. Both events are open to everyone (graduate students, postdocs, research scientist, faculty members, …) and there are no restrictions on the numbers. Additionally, we will have a two-day tutorial on grantsmanships skills tailored for up to 60 junior faculty, and for anyone that comes to that, the PDU will read and comment on one proposal they prepare.
We will hold the tutorial for working within NC State, January 31rst at in the College of Textiles building on Centennial Campus, room 2431. We will also offer this lecture on February 21rst in the DH Hill Faculty Senate Chambers on Main Campus, again from . Registration is suggested, but not necessary to attend, and the event is open to anyone that wants to learn more about conducting research at NC State.
Below are some of the topics we'll discuss in this tutorial:
FInding resources (Collaborators, Equipment, Expertise, …)
Finding Funding Sources (Internal, Federal, Notifications, Limited Submissions, Industry)
Developing a Proposal (Classes, Budgeting, F&A, Matching Funds, Faculty Toolbox)
Submission (College Research Offices, PINS)
