The Faculty Development Team (FDT) serves as a resource to members of the faculty, working to help cultivate the skills and provide the visibility that they need in order to advance their respective scholarship, research, and creative activities. To that end, FDT offers direct proposal development support and a variety of workshops on proposal writing and finding funding.
In the realm of proposal support, the FDT supports investigator- initiated proposals, faculty awards, and fellowships with an emphasis on early career opportunities. Their assistance with opportunity identification, proposal development and editing, and the submission process are invaluable in making proposals more competitive and helping faculty develop their proposal development skills and credibility as they move throughout their career. The FDT also often supports more experienced faculty with proposals to award categories they may not previously have sought.
One of the Faculty Development Team’s most valuable workshops is their Introduction to Proposal Development. This fall, the workshop will be offered to faculty and post-docs twice, and once to graduate students.
Graduate Student Session:
October 13, 2–3 p.m.
Please consider attending this workshop to learn how to strengthen the persuasive style of a proposal, respond to a funding opportunity announcement, refine a proposal concept, plan a proposal development timeline, develop a proposal structure, write with reviewers in mind, and more.
