The Office of Research is once again offering our popular training series,  Fundamentals of Sponsored Administration, to help grant administrators and other personnel involved in the grant process, from proposal preparation through award close out. Fundamentals of Sponsored Administration is a seven-course series of 2-hour training classes, each on a different topic related to the administration of sponsored awards. 

In this session you will learn about the different sorts of audit and review that sponsored programs are subject to.

Do you know what grantmakers look for when deciding what research to fund? The answers might not be what you think. Showing grantmakers that you know what they want is as important as showing them what you can do with their money.

To learn how to effectively communicate the impact and significance of your research through the written word and visuals, we will workshop two white papers, one for a technical audience and one for a non-specialized audience. You will leave with tools you can use to effectively draft white papers and proposal summaries for your own research.

If interested, you may submit questions in advance to Research Development.
