Funds available for mentors to review your grant applications: We are offering faculty a new strategy to be successful with grant writing. EHHD will provide $100 for EHHD grant writers to offer to a successful grant writing expert in your field to review a draft of your grant proposal. Recently we heard of another university that used this strategy with great success. With a $100 investment, faculty were getting an amazing quantity of helpful feedback that increased their success rates. Here are the specifics: one $100 stipend per grant that you submit; provide the name and credentials to Bill Ruff. You want to shoot for the biggest star in your area, and hopefully, when they read your stellar proposal they will also want to be a consultant for your project!
Research Computing Group (RCG): aims to provide affordable IT infrastructure to researchers. This is a collaborative effort between the ITC and the Office of the Vice President for Research to provide additional research-specific resources that lie outside the scope of ITC services.
