November 2016: Reviewer’s Roundtable NEW!!
Monday, November 14, 2016
Location: Berndt Hall 2404, Seminar Room (Upper level)
Time: 12:30-1:30 pm

Do reviewers really care that much about page limits and fonts when the science in the proposal is exceptional? Do they examine the budget for specific details or not even read it at all? Get an inside look at the proposal review process from four FLC faculty and staff who have served as reviewers for federal agencies (NIH, NSF, Dept. of ED, IMLS, NEH, DOE) and private foundations (Kellogg, Alfred P. Sloan, Rockefeller, David and Lucile Packard). Improve your chances of success by learning what goes on inside the proposal review process!

January 2017: Using Cayuse 424
Tuesday, January 17, 2017
Location: EBH 40

Cayuse is the electronic grant management system all faculty and staff are required to use to route a proposal for internal approvals before submitting to an outside agency for funding. (Say that fast three times!) This workshop is for those who have never used Cayuse, for those just needing a “tune-up”, and for those who have a proposal in the works. We’ll review how to create the proposal in the system, enter the budget, and route it for electronic approvals.

Thursday, February 23, 2017
Location: EBH 40
