The field of research administration is expansive with professionals in grant writing, budget development, contracts, compliance, financial management, clinical trials, etc. With almost any skillset you can find a niche in research administration. In this intensive training program, we are going to focus on the foundations of pre-award research administration. The pre-award aspect of our discipline is the launching point of any research program, so your role is vital to the research portfolio of your institution. So, let’s get you off to a solid start on your career path. Over the next couple of weeks, we will discuss organizational structures and their tie to how we carry out our work. We will also explore how to identify funding opportunities that enhance the mission of your principle investigator, department, or institution. Another key component of pre-award work is proposal and budget development, so we will breakdown the components of a grant application, and then we will tackle how to submit proposals. But, this intensive isn’t a cliff-hanger. We will wrap up the program discussing the next steps in graciously accepting reviewers’ comments or responding to an award notification. We will be using a number of interactive learning tools, so we encourage you to actively participate.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a total of 12 CEU credits. Participants will have access to 5 additional hours of webinars related to the intensive training.
