Do you have a great idea for a project but need some funding to accomplish it? Learn about how committing an hour of your week can pay off! 

In this session, Mary Blackwood, Senior Sponsored Research Specialist at the UI Division of Sponsored Programs, will talk about how to set yourself up for grant-seeking success, how to manage roadblocks on the journey, and why anyone—from experienced faculty to newbie grad student—can increase their chances of getting a grant award by finding the right sponsor.

This session will help you develop creative searching strategies to identify lesser-known sources of funding like family foundations that are especially suited to very specific or small to moderate sized projects.
