- Faculty Grant Development Working Group
Faculty are invited to submit applications to participate in the engineering grant development working group program in AY 2022-23. The working group format will be similar to AY 2021-22 with one important change - faculty working on proposal resubmissions can also form a working group. A working group can be formed by 4-5 faculty members who are committed to (1) developing new external grant proposals or (2) working on resubmissions for funding opportunities that are similar in nature and/or have deadlines that are close to each other.
Application Due Dates
Applications will be accepted if submitted at least three months before the earliest grant submission deadline of the group, but those submitted before the following deadlines will receive priority consideration, within the program budget.
