April 25: Graduate workshop
Learn how to find and apply for external funding opportunities
8:24 a.m., April 14, 2011--The University of Delaware Office of Graduate and Professional Education in collaboration with the Research Office will host a workshop on Monday, April 25, from 3:30-5 p.m., in Room 102 Gore Hall, for early-career graduate students interested in developing external fellowship proposals.
Led by Leigh Botner of the Research Office and Carol Rudisell of the University of Delaware Library, the session will focus on how to find funding opportunities and then cover the nuts and bolts of proposal development. The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program will be used as a specific example. NSF GRFs provide funding for research-based master’s and doctoral education in a wide range of fields including science, engineering, the social sciences and STEM education.
“External graduate fellowships provide funding and often tuition support while bringing visibility and prestige to our students and programs,” said Charlie Riordan, vice provost for graduate and professional education. “The Office of Graduate and Professional Education is committed to supporting fellowship proposal development with a goal of more than doubling the number of fellows on campus over the next several years.”
