When? October 10, 2013 (8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.)
Where? North Carolina Research Campus
Sponsored by: The Grant Training Center
This one-day comprehensive workshop is geared for those who wish to submit winning research proposals to the National Science Foundation (NSF). It is taught by experienced faculty who have received various NSF grants and serve as evaluators on NSF review panels.
Participants will understand how to navigate the FastLane, focus on the key sections of successful proposals and demonstrate that their projects merit the excellence and innovation that bring them to the top of other submissions. All sessions engage the attendees in interactive exercises, writing, lectures and discussions so that all participants will leave the class understanding how to research, write and develop their specific project.
Areas to be covered include the:
1. Overall strategic plan of grant-writing
2. Types of awards and NSF funding, including what to look for in a grant application
3. Proposal preparation process and submission mechanisms
4. Characteristics, content and function of the various pieces of the proposal, including: hypothesis, methods, outcomes, broader implications, evaluation, timelines and budgets
5. Secret to organizing and writing “Merit Review Criteria”
Participants will learn how to:
1. Compose the pieces of an NSF Research Grant Proposal
2. Understand the inner workings of NSF’s Peer Review System and the rating scores
3. Develop and write the approach and “Broader Impacts” section
4. Package superior proposal submissions
5. Avoid the fatal flaws of a grant
6. Effectively write and approach resubmissions
Presenter: Dr. Henry L. Bart has been a Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology for Tulane University since 1996. He received a B.S. and M.S. (Biology) from the University of New Orleans, and his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Bart is a director of Tulane’s Museum of Natural History, is involved in a number of professional steering committees, has several funded research grants, and is a panel member for many NSF programs. Among the various grants that he has received from NSF is a grant to increase the number of minorities who ultimately pursue careers in academia.
Dr. Bart has published over 50 articles and books nationally and internationally, including his most recent publications on phylogenetic relationships of the North American cyprinid subgenus Hydrophlox, molecular phylogenetics, and evolution. Some of his research interests include the relationship between mitochondrial genomics and the basal divergence of cypriniform fish, and evolutionary divergence of duplicate copies of the growth hormone gene in suckers.
Space is limited, and since this class fills-up quickly, it is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
