Posted March 1, 2024 by Dan Moser

There’s still time – but not much – to register for the Office of Research and Economic Development’s annual grant writing seminar. “Writing Winning Grant Proposals” is scheduled for March 8 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center. 

Registration is 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 registered after Feb. 22 will receive their workbook after the seminar. You do not need the workbook to attend. 
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 graduatestudents, 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 in the Office of Research and Economic Development.
