Training and Education

 The Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) at Ball State University offers a variety of educational opportunities for grantsmanship education. Whether you are one of our new "alpha" faculty or seasoned professional with an interest in grantsmanship, we have a program to fit your needs.

Throughout the year SPO staff holds additional workshops and informational sessions on a range of topics including:

  • Cayuse424 Training
  • Focus on the Search
  • Fulbright Scholar Program
  • Grant Writing Essentials Series
  • How to Fund Your Research (Graduate School Orientation)
  • Research Tools (partnership with the University Libraries)
  • Research Week (new 2014)

All sessions are also posted and advertised with University Learning and Development and can be registered for through the Minicourse system. To request a classroom presentation, please use our Presentation Request Form.  

Watch the BSU Communications Center for notifications under “Research & Programs” about our offerings throughout the year.
