Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Grant Writing Mentorship program for Fall 2014.
The objective of this program is to facilitate the development of competitive external grant proposals by providing individualized mentorship and training to high-potential research faculty lacking experience in grant writing. The Grant Writing Mentorship program will pair an inexperienced faculty member (the mentee), with an interest in writing a major grant proposal, with a senior faculty member (the mentor) with demonstrated expertise and success in securing funding from the agency targeted by the mentee.
Funding through this program is intended only for those grants or contracts to be submitted and administered through RSP. The mentee must serve as the Principal Investigator on the proposal submission. The mentee will receive a one-course release for the semester and the mentor will receive a stipend.
Previous mentees in the program have received funding from the Academy of Korean Studies, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Institutes of Health, and National Science Foundation.
Applications are due October 15, 2013, by 4 p.m. The application package comprises a cover page with a brief description of the project and the applicant’s CV. All applications must be submitted via Cayuse 424, routed to your chair/director and then Janet Goucher.
