    What do you do when you need a form signed, but can’t seem to find your advisor? Maybe you are waiting on feedback for your manuscript, but haven’t heard anything in weeks. Or perhaps you would like to ask your advisor’s advice about something, but are unsure how to start the conversation. As graduate students, we heavily depend on our advisors to help guide us through graduate school; however, we also understand that faculty members are busy.

    Grant applications include various sections, one of the most important being the project narrative. This is your chance to describe your research idea to the funding agency, how it will be carried out, why your project is important, and the feasibility of such a project. In this session, we will discuss how to develop a strong project narrative and how to communicate your research clearly. This session will also be very beneficial for students who are applying for a SEEDS grant.  Presenter: Kayla Arnold, Office for Research and Gradate Education

    Many graduate students work with sponsored programs during their career, whether looking for funding opportunities, working with an advisor to put together a grant budget, or assisting with project reports. In this session we will explore the basics of sponsored programs, including types of sponsors and funding opportunities, as well as ways to find funding opportunities. We will also learn about basic budgeting techniques as we provide an overview of the expenses most commonly requested in grant applications.
