“This program is an investment in the future of both UNL and our early career faculty,” said Prem S. Paul, vice chancellor for research and economic development. “We’re providing the focus, resources and expert advice to give our fellows a competitive advantage as they seek funding.”

The program’s primary components are learning activities and expert consultations. Formal and informal learning sessions help fellows plan and write effective grant proposals, build responsible project budgets and understand the proposal review process.

Individualized consultations with Office of Research and Economic Development staff provide developmental support and expertise as fellows conceptualize project plans and write grant proposals. The office also sponsors travel for fellows to visit federal program officers in Washington, D.C.
