The Division of Research and Innovation is hosting an annual workshop for untenured faculty who are considering early career grant proposals. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 6, from 9-10 a.m. in MULN 453/452. 

The biggest source of these grants is the National Science Foundation CAREER program, but there are also similar early-stage grant programs sponsored by the Department of Energy, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Department of Defense, NASA and even the National Institutes of Health. 

Please note that these programs, NSF in particular, fund social and behavioral science work in addition to STEM. We wish to encourage our new faculty from the full range of funded disciplines to compete for these awards. Early career faculty at the U of A have been very successful in pursuing these prestigious awards. This workshop is an opportunity to learn from the experience of others. 

If you plan on attending, please fill out this registration form by March 1 at 5 p.m. Registration is limited to 25 participants, so register soon!
