During a networking luncheon, the Office of Proposal Development and the Bureau of Sociological Research will lead discussions on proposal development resources available for UNL researchers.

The workshop will conclude with presentations on applying for other early career funding programs, including DOD’s Young Investigator Program and DOE’s Early Career Research Program. Participants also will learn about opportunities to collaborate with industry.
