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. Coffee & treats will be provided 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.
