Interior_Banner_Events
This institute will bring together faculty and administrators interested in preparing proposals for submission to external funding agencies. The four-day institute will consist of one-on-one work with a mentor, writing, small-group discussions, and critiquing of proposals. The institute has been developed to assist novice to experienced proposal writers in drafting complete proposals for submission. Prior to the institute, participants will be able to access information that will help them begin to draft their proposal.
Time at the Institute will consist of periods of proposal preparation interspersed with one-on-one mentoring by experienced and successful proposal writers, members of grants review panels, former program officers, and/or Directors of Sponsored Programs Offices. Small group discussions and group critiquing sessions round out the Institute. Participants who come well prepared and who work hard should be able to leave the Institute with a completed (or nearly completed) proposal to the granting agency of their choice.

Application Information

Application Deadline - May 31, 2019
 

Acceptance Notifications Timeline

Applicants will be notified by no later than the first week of June. 
 
Application coming soon.
 
Applicants must submit a one to two paragraph outline of their proposal and the name of the intended funding agency and/or program in the on-line application.  This will help us determine how we can best support their proposal efforts. If you have NOT identified a funding source and begun writing a draft proposal, you should NOT participate in this Institute as it is geared for writing and revising draft proposals. (Note: The Proposal Development Workshop (previously offered) was designed to assist individuals learn how to find a funding source; it is currently no longer being offered.) The week before the Institute, accepted participants will be expected to submit a draft of their proposal, and a link to the specific program announcement/RFP. Participants are encouraged to have as much as possible completed in advance, which will increase the likelihood of departing the Institute with a nearly finished proposal. Previous participants were nearly unanimous in declaring that they would have benefited even more from the Institute if they had been further along before they arrived.  
 

Lodging Options:

Details coming soon!
 

Cancellation Policy:

In general, the cancellation deadline is 30 days prior to the start of the conference, except where explicitly noted. Cancellations requests received in writing to the CUR National Office prior to the cancellation deadline will receive a full refund less a $50.00 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given after the cancellation deadline. Transfer of registration to another individual before the cancellation deadline is free of charge but subject to member classification charges due to differences in conference rates. Transfer of registration after the cancellation deadline will be charged a $50.00 transfer fee.
Institutions may not substitute one participant for another without prior approval of the CUR National Office.
CUR always suggests that registrants purchase low-cost travel insurance when booking their air reservations. Not only will this insurance cover your airfare in the event of cancellation, but it will also cover the registration cost for the meeting.
