PURPOSE & CONTEXT. DRN objectives include support and facilitation of faculty research across all fields, including STEAM, Social Sciences, Humanities. Dedicated spaces for the discussion of funding and working with the unique needs of diverse scholars is not often available.  In this forum we hope to provide direct information and tips relevant to funding and grant success for ethnically and racially diverse faculty and faculty who address ethnically, racially, culturally, and economically diverse populations to name a few.

Panelists will provide a range of information about programs of working with program officers, training, grant opportunities with any focus on underrepresented faculty, or grants that focus on diversity. Your pre-questions on the registration form will aid the panelists in targeting your needs.

STRUCTUREThere will be 4 panelists for the webinar: Drs. Nancy Lutz (NSF), Holly Hapke (NSF), Cheryl Boyce (NIH) and Adelaida Rosario (NIMHD). For those who hope to engage with a consultant and have lunch in 110 Chittenden, you can view the webinar in that space.  We will close out the webinar at the end of 75 minutes and begin the next segment at 11:30a. 

In the second segment there will be 45 minutes to work with consultants and then continue lunch where five to six consultants are available for more in depth consultations.

FOCUS OF CONSULTING SEGMENT. Consider your questions ahead of time.  The consulting should provide a point of contact for these organizations’ information about how to work with them.  These participants can continue the Q & A asking about tips and working within the different agencies, agency priorities for research.  Participants can process questions, additional program questions, and broad questions about program focus or interests in their area, proposal ideas. 

Note: More detailed information about a specific proposal can best be suited for the small group conversations. 

You can choose the webinar only, providing pre-questions will further focus the panel and consultant comments.

We look forward to seeing you! Please contact us if you have any further questions.
