We are pleased to announce the Purdue Calumet Proposal Development Grant (Phase I). This grant has been designed to support Purdue Calumet faculty members in writing high quality external proposals in support of their teaching and research. Specific guidelines for this initiative can be found here.
The Office of Research and Graduate Studies will provide up to $2,500 per award which can be used as follows:
- 0.25 FTE time release for PUC faculty members during the spring semester, 2013. Approvals from department head and dean are required.
- Proposal development funds for travel, equipment, supplies or student stipends. A budget justification is required
Each award recipient must attend a monthly meeting held during the spring semester, 2013.
- Regular meetings with other grant writers will sustain an environment of formal review of draft proposals. The meetings intend to improve proposal clarity and will allow monitoring of proposal preparation progress. Awardees will also have the opportunity to meet with PI’s who have experience in writing successful grants.
All application materials must be submitted to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies by November 30, 2012. Submissions must be electronic, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as a single attachment.
