CLAS is again sponsoring 30 seats for this October’s Phase I Write Winning Grant Proposals seminar presented by Dr. John Robertson and hosted by the Research Development Office in the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR). Registration is open! At this time there are 17 sponsored seats remaining.

PLEASE NOTE: For the upcoming round of the OVPR’s Early Career Scholars Competition, only TT Assistant Professors who have either taken the Phase I grant writing course in Fall 2021 or are signed up to take it in Fall 2022 will be eligible! If you have new professors in your department who can benefit from this course, please encourage them to sign up for a remaining CLAS-sponsored slot by September 18.

This year’s seminar will be held in person with a virtual attendance option available. Please see details below. Additional information including registration instructions for the seminar are posted on the OVPR website.

Phase I Seminar

This one-day seminar is scheduled for Thursday, October 6 (8:30 AM – 4:30 PM). The seminar is a pre-requisite to the Phase II intensive workshop and the OVPR Early Career Scholars Program. Registration for participation in the seminar is $150 per person, which includes the seminar, a $75 grant writing workbook, supplemental materials, and lunch for the in person participants. (CLAS is covering the cost for our first 30 collegiate attendees!) The deadline to register is Sunday, September 18, 11:59 pm.

Phase II Workshop

A follow up Phase II intensive workshop is scheduled for January 12-13, 2023, and is capped at 25 faculty participants. Phase II tuition is $4,000 per person and will be divided equally between the participant’s department, college and the OVPR. To be considered for participation in the workshop, candidates must be nominated by associate dean for research Joshua Weiner and submit the required pre-proposal. OVPR will review the proposals in collaboration with Dr. Robertson and notify candidates with the outcome and next steps. Participants selected for the workshop must attend this October’s Phase I seminar or have attended the October 2021 Phase 1 seminar. CLAS can support up to 3 Phase II participants this year; please consider whether your department can support 1/3 of the cost and, if so, you may contact Associate Dean Weiner with suggested nominees.
