The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host a research grant writing proposal seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus. The main campus seminar will take place November 13, 2015, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM in the Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren, Main Campus. The seminar is for hypothesis-driven research (medical, biological and physical sciences and engineering). Light morning refreshments and lunch will be served. The seminar will address both conceptual and practical aspects that are associated with the grant-writing process. It will emphasize idea development, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that have kept the co-founders of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops funded continuously for over twenty-five years. Each attendee will receive a copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook. You will need to identify which workbook you need at the time of registration. Below is the list of available versions from which you can select.

Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals Seminar
March 3 2016 at 1:30 PM
McGregor Memorial Conference Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer this research career development award writing seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on Thursday, March 3, 2016, 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center, 495 Gilmour Mall, Rooms FGH.  The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus to conduct this seminar presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar. The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to create teacher-scholars – faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students to learn better. It is a very prestigious award.  Acquisition of a CAREER Award is particularly distinguishing in the developing career of an assistant professor, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of what NSF is trying to accomplish with the award, i.e., the purpose of the award, which is what this seminar teaches. Space is limited! You must register by February 12, 2016.  The fee for seminar is $50 and may be paid by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot.  Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar.  Please contact sjames@wayne.edu if you have questions.
