Grant Development Scholars Program

  What is it?


The College of Education Research Office’s (COERO) year-long Grant Development Scholars Program will boost faculty knowledge and skills related to all aspects of seeking and securing external research funding. Through in-person workshops and panel discussions delivered by COERO staff and University experts, peer support, one-on-one sessions and completion of program deliverables, participating Scholars will be better positioned to develop their research ideas into competitive, successful proposals to federal agencies and foundations.

  Who is eligible?


All full-time College of Education faculty are eligible to apply to one of two tracks:

  • Information Seekers have limited or no grant experience and want to learn effective strategies for seeking external funding.

  • Proposal Developers are ready to develop their research project and commit to submitting a proposal within one year of completing the program (January 2021).

  What will Scholars do?


Throughout the process, all Scholars have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one COERO support and mentoring sessions at the request of the scholar.

  • Spring and Fall 2019: Scholars will participate in four two-hour workshops each semester; workshops will be held one Friday morning each month
  • Summer 2019: Scholars will work on or off campus to complete August deliverables, consulting with COERO staff throughout the summer, as needed.
