The Office of Research believes that it is essential to provide researchers with resources and tools to make them successful in the research enterprise. The training options provided by the Office of Research cover the beginning stages of determining potential funding opportunities, through the application process, and then how to manage an award once it is received by the principal investigator.
These workshops are open to faculty, graduate students, and staff working or planning to work with research grants. The workshops and training are free unless otherwise noted.
Please let us know if there are training opportunities not listed here that you would be interested in and we would be happy to look into the possibility of providing or locating them.
For training inquiries or suggestions, please contact Judy Bemenderfer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 631-0509.
