Not As Bad As You Think: A Primer on RFPs, Proposals, and Evaluation
- Target Audience: Faculty, Staff, PostDocs, Grad Students
- Tuesday, April 10, 2018
- 10:30am - 12:00pm
- University Library, Room 1126
Extramural funding can seem like an impregnable fortress. Often times, the mere thought of applying for a grant sets teeth to gnashing and blood pressure soaring. This is a persistent view but it doesn't have to be that way. Proposals are a constant in the research landscape. Understanding a proposal's components and contexts is essential to being competitive. Also integral to your funding success is an acute awareness of evaluation tools and methods. Both proposals and evaluation plans are counter-intuitive so let's do some unpacking so you can begin from a position of power.
NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates
- Target Audience: IUPUI and IUPUC Faculty interested in mentoring undergraduate researchers
- Friday, April 13, 2018
- University Library, Room 2115E
This information session focuses on the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which supports active participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. The next submission deadline is expected to be August 22, 2018. Proposals for REU sites are for independent projects that engage several undergraduate students in research on a well-defined common theme. Proposals for REU supplements are for support of one or two undergraduate students to participate in research under the auspices of a new or ongoing NSF-funded project. Discussion will cover proposal strategies, campus resources, and budgetary considerations. Food and drink are allowed in the session venue.Register now
NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program
- Target Audience: IUPUI and IUPUC First-year graduate students in STEM and STEM education, undergraduate juniors and seniors planning to enroll in STEM or STEM education graduate programs
- Friday, April 20, 2018
University Library, Room 2115EThis information session introduces interested students to the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The GRFP is an NSF-wide program that provides fellowships to students in the earliest stages of their graduate careers to pursue non-medical research in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. Topics to be discussed include details of the support provided by the fellowship, eligibility requirements, application requirements and procedures, and strategies for developing strong proposals. Submission deadlines for fellowship applications will be October 22, 23, and 25, 2018, the specific day dependent on discipline.
NOTE: Eligibility for the NSF GRFP is limited to students who are U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents (see Program Solicitation, NSF 16-588, for further eligibility requirements). This session is sponsored by Proposal Development Services and the STEM Education Innovation and Research Institute.Register now
