Proposal Writing Cohort Group
The Sponsored Programs and Research Office in coordination with the Center for Faculty Enrichment (CAFÉ) is initiating a Proposal Writing Cohort Group.
The purpose of this program is to provide specialized support for a small group of selected faculty who commit to writing a moderate-to-large sized grant over the course of the academic year. The impetus is for faculty to identify an on-campus collaborator(s) and develop an interdisciplinary project for submission to an external funding agency.
A cohort group of 3-5 teams* will be selected to participate in an intensive experience to learn the nuts and bolts of proposal writing. The course will consist of a half-day introductory workshop to be held on Saturday, October 20th followed by monthly meetings (scheduled by group consensus) throughout the fall and spring semester.
CAFÉ will award $500 to each faculty member who participates and submits a competitive application upon completion of the program.
To be considered for the program, each group must submit an application and brief project concept by October 12, 2012.
See attached application for instructions (PDF).
If you need help to identify a potential collaborator, the Sponsored Programs and Research Office may be able to help.
*Teams are limited to 2 or 3 faculty members and each participant must be from a different department or college. No grant writing experience necessary.
