Professionalize your Approach to Grantsmanship
Stanley Geidel, SPO Program Manager will discuss how to professionalize your
approach to grantsmanship. Perhaps you have previously written and submitted a
grant or have met with some preliminary success and received external funding
for a smaller project. What’s next? This one-hour session invites you to embrace
a fully professional approach to the quest for external funding by examining
three important roles that faculty occupy in the Academy: the roles of
professor, principal investigator, and grantseeker.
New Ways to
Approach Private and Foundation Funding
Access to private funding
sources has become increasingly important with continued cuts in federal
programs and spending. The presentation will explore the current state of
private funding and examines trends that colleges and universities need to
consider when applying for grants offered by corporations or foundations. The
presentation will also discuss overall private funding trends and the importance
of doing research to find the right private funding fit.
