Welcome to your new edition of the Grants Connection
and .... October! Does anything move faster than the academic year? I am energized not only by the pace at which we move through our work and the AY, but also by the diligence of faculty and staff who are currently working on multiple, complex federal, state and private grants - including some individuals who are working on several projects at the same time. I'm not sure how there is sufficient time in the day, but I applaud your progress and our collaborations. Check KUDOS
often to keep up with these projects as each is submitted.
I am also looking forward to presenting a grants workshop on September 29th
for the new Early Career Professionals group. Thanks to Erin Cowling for organizing this group and the workshop. Both present a great opportunity to help emerging grants-seekers become comfortable with the process and connect with more-experienced collaborators, learn from each other about our campus community approach to grants-seeking, and generally encourage a continuing investment in grants - all while we get to better know one another.
I hope you will find something in the opportunities announced below that will energize you! Please let me know if I can help you pursue an opportunity of interest. If you don't find what you are looking for, let me know that too. The more I know about your individual research and interest areas, the better I will be able to help you. PJ.
