The Office of Research and Economic Development will host its annual grant writing seminar, “Writing Winning Grant Proposals,” March 8 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center. Registration is open and required to attend. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

The seminar will address idea development, identification of appropriate granting agencies, how to write for reviewers and strategies for presenting your case to reviewers.

Faculty, staff and postdocs can select one of the seminar’s four workbooks depending on the source from which they plan to pursue funding: National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture or a general version geared toward smaller funding agencies and foundations.

Participants who register before Feb. 22 will receive their workbook at the seminar. Those who register on or after that date will receive their workbook after the workshop. You do not need the workbook to attend the seminar.

This seminar is free for UNL faculty, postdoctoral research fellows and university staff. Faculty from other University of Nebraska campuses may attend but will be charged $150 to cover seminar costs. Participants not affiliated with the University of Nebraska are welcome to attend and will be billed $200.

For graduate students, the workshop “Getting Started with Grant Writing,” is on March 7. Contact Graduate Studies for more information. Due to contractual restrictions, this seminar will not be recorded.

For more information, contact Becky Carter, organizational development specialist.
