Opportunities and Challenges in the Grant Funding Landscape
In this session, Sponsored Programs staff will provide information for beginning researchers regarding the challenges of competitive funding and will discuss how to select from among federal and foundation sponsors in support of project ideas. During the session, we will demonstrate how to use the federal database, grants.gov, to search for funding opportunities. Navigating the organizational structures of sponsors can be difficult; SPA staff will describe how to locate key priorities and when to contact Program Officers for guidance. We will describe similarities in how proposals are reviewed across agencies in ways that are helpful to develop proposal sections for various sponsors.
