Each spring, the Office of the Provost sponsors a Grant Writing Seminar series. The series covers questions such as: How do I get started? How do I locate funding sources? What are the elements of a grant proposal? How do I construct a budget? How do I handle partnerships or subcontracts? What is the IRB? Where do I get equipment specs, institutional data, technical and other assistance? Any question you have is welcomed and encouraged.

Bonnie Bruno, Director of Sponsored Programs, and Jenny Chapman, Grant Coordinator, lead the series.

Information for this year’s sessions:


2022 sessions will be held in Lindner 204.
