Early/Young Investigator Grant Proposal Workshop

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

8:30 am - 11:15 am

The Division of Research and the Office of the Faculty Engagement and Development invite you to a workshop covering Early/Young Investigator career-type awards.

These awards are available from many federal agencies (National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Department of Agriculture, DARPA, Department of Energy) as well as several foundations/non-profit agencies.

The workshop will include a panel of UH faculty members who have successfully applied for these awards to discuss their experiences with this process and answer questions about the grant applications. A section on logistics for the major federal agency proposals will present information on requirements, timelines and strategies for successful proposal development.
