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
  • 10:00am–12:00pm
  • 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.
