Grants funding can be critical to faculty careers, but difficult to pull off on your own given limited time. ISSR invites you to take part in a flexible, year-long series aimed at motivating, informing, and supporting faculty writing grants for submission in 2020.  

Join us any time. You can stop by each week for remote workshops, writing sprints, and research design office hours that will help you stay on track for your goals, or hop on and off for only the sessions you need. Our registration form offers you a one-stop chance to sign up for the sessions that interest you most, all year long - no need to re-register as the weeks go by.

All registered participants will be joined to the Funding Fridays Moodle course, and able to access the helpful library of resources for all sessions and stages of the grant writing process.

Sessions meet every Friday from 10:30 - 11:30 am on Zoom, throughout the year.  Put these dates into your calendar now to assure that you have a completed proposal draft by May!
