Fall 2023 Grant Writing Bootcamp Session Dates Coming Soon! 

Join Dr. Kelly McNear for the Grant Writing Bootcamp designed to help faculty develop a high-quality, well-planned, and successful grant proposal. You will learn best practices from grant-successful peers and have on-hand support from the Research Development Coordinator and grant support personnel.

Modeled after a successful bootcamp at Montana State University, this 5-session bootcamp will feature grant-specific topics, speakers who will share their thoughts and ideas with participants, and peer-review feedback sessions to get input on various aspects of your proposal. Peer-reviewed data from MSU showed that participants who attended bootcamp had greater success and more funding dollars than their non-participant counterparts.

If you'd like more information or have any questions, please reach out to Kelly at
