Upcoming Classes in the Research Administration Training Series (RATS) & Other Research Administration News

Registration for the May 18-20, 2018 Research Education Grant Writing Academy is now open! 

Given the increasingly competitive environment for federal funding, it is essential that the University provide clear guidance and strong mentorship for our junior faculty members in refining their grant proposals and enhancing their likelihood of funding. Attendance is highly limited!  Please contact Corrie Harris with any questions.

(Future program dates are October 26-28, 2018  /  May 17-19, 2019 and October 25-27, 2019) If you are interested in knowing more about how to write a proposal for the National Science Foundation online materials are available through RATS Online Classes.

Also, you may be interested in joining the Research Administrators’ Network (RAN) which provides a forum for colleagues to share ideas and to offer general peer support and guidance for the benefit of the University research community. The RAN further promotes opportunities for networking and potential research collaborations.
