About the workshop

Seeking out good partners to fund your research mission is key, however the post-pandemic landscape for foundation and federal research-related funding is dynamic. This workshop will help you navigate the current funding landscape to develop your pipeline of future funders. Whether you plan to write a proposal for a federal agency, foundation, or an internal grant competition, this workshop will help you build your research trajectory by understanding exactly where you are, where you need to go, and how to develop a plan to get there. With this workshop, you will:

  • understand the most recent post-pandemic grant funding landscape.

  • understand the cumulative and cyclical nature of the grant funding process.
  • learn how to effectively leverage grant funding to support research and teaching.
