The Office of Research and Economic Development is seeking applicants for the 2016-2017 Research Development Fellows Program (RDFP), a year-long program designed to help full-time, pre-tenure faculty obtain the information and experience they need to develop and submit successful external grant proposals. Oct. 3 is the application deadline.
The RDFP is ideal for early-stage faculty intending to submit proposals to federal funding agencies like the Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and U.S. Department of Agriculture. Since its inception in 2009, 132 UNL faculty have completed the program. Positive participant feedback regarding the program and past Fellows’ research funding successes affirm the RDFP’s value.
To learn more about program activities and the application process, visit the RDFP website. For additional information, contact Nathan Meier, assistant vice chancellor for research, 402-472-3902, or Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, 402-472-2894.
