Registration is now open for the OVPR’s annual proposal development seminars!
This year, we will offer the all-day “Write Winning Grant Proposals” program on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017, as well as two two special half-day sessions focused on federal career development grants. The first half-day session, on the morning of Friday, Jan. 6, is focused on STEM awards like the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. The second, on the afternoon of Jan. 6, covers biomedical career development programs like the National Institutes of Health’s Career Development Awards, including the mentored K-awards and the F-series fellowships for pre- and postdoctoral students. Special eligibility requirements apply to the half-day sessions; see the program descriptions below for specific information.
Our speaker for each of the sessions is Dr. Peg AtKisson of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops. Dr. AtKisson is a neuroscientist and former director of proposal development in the Office of the Vice Provost at Tufts University.
