Register now for DoD funding workshopFaculty seeking ideas to successfully compete for U.S. Department of Defense funding can get information at an Oct. 3 workshop, "Obtaining Research Funding from the Department of Defense."
Sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development, the workshop will be from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union Heritage Room, with lunch included. Advance registration is required.
Increasing defense funding is one of UNL’s goals for achieving its research and economic development growth plans. Participants will learn about DoD research offices, agency culture and terminology, young investigator programs, and special considerations and requirements for writing funding proposals. The workshop will include how-tos on finding a program officer and writing a quad chart or white chart. The event will feature a two-hour hands-on session to help researchers determine where their research fits at DoD.
The presenter is Lucy Deckard, a proposal development expert with Academic Research Funding Strategies LLC. Previously, Deckard was associate director of the Office of Proposal Development at Texas A&M University and a research engineer. Deckard has successfully competed for funding from DoD and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
