WhenThursday, Oct. 18, 2018, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Grants Resource Center (GRC) Workshop at UW Tacoma, October 18
The Grants Resource Center (GRC) – a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities – has supported sponsored research programs in higher education since the 1960s. UW Tacoma joined the GRC in Winter 2018.
On October 18th, 9:00-4:00, UW Tacoma will host Director Erika Thompson, with Program Managers Richard Wellons and Frank Graeff from the GRC headquarters in Washington, D.C. These experts will provide:

• Best Practices in Proposal Development
• A review of key agencies and federal updates, e.g. NIH, DoD, DOE, NIJ, NEH
• An overview of National Science Foundation (NSF) review of funding priorities, program, and Merit Review process.
• A discussion of NSF funding opportunities that support Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs), including:
o NSF funding opportunities that support collaboration between 2- and 4-year colleges, e.g. Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP), Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM), Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE), Research Coordination Networks (RCNs), Bridges to Baccalaureate
o NSF funding opportunities that support student research experiences (e.g. Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)) – with particular focus on experiences for both 2- and 4-year students
o Additional funding opportunities available through other federal and private sponsors
Coffee and refreshments, as well as a working lunch at noon will be provided during the workshop at no cost to participants.
