Three workshops on grants, human subjects

A workshop on Locating Grant Funding Opportunities will be Wednesday, April 11, 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Curry Building 304.

Faculty and graduate students often require external funding for research, scholarship and creative activity. This workshop will explore how to get the most from grant-seeking databases, including SPIN, GrantSelect, Grant Advisor Plus and the Foundation Center.

Participants learn to search for possible funding opportunities, practice identifying eligibility and realize the importance of key words. Attendees will have opportunities to access databases and engage in searches related to their topic of interest.

The workshop is presented by the Office of Sponsored Programs and University Libraries. Register at https://workshops.uncg.edu by selecting “Office of Sponsored Programs.”

 

The workshop, “Steps Towards Successful Submissions of Grant Proposals” will take place Monday, April 16, 2 to 3:30 p.m. in MHRA Building 2711.
