Grants funding can be critical to faculty careers, but difficult to pull off on your own given limited time. ISSR invites faculty, staff and post-doctoral or visiting scholars to take part in a series of workshops and "write on sites" aimed at motivating, informing, and supporting faculty writing grants for submission in 2020. Take the grand tour, or hop-on and hop-off for the sessions you most need. Grab your mug and snacks, and join us for the journey. 

Sessions meet every Friday from 10 - 11:30 am in Machmer E20, starting January 24 and ending April 24. Register now, and put these dates into your calendar now to assure that you have a completed proposal draft by May. 

For the remainder of the Spring 2020 term, we will convene Funding Fridays sessions via Zoom. Please do register using the link above, so that we may follow up with session resources and support as you continue to develop your grant proposal. All registered participants will be automatically joined to the Funding Fridays Moodle course, and able the helpful resources for all sessions.
