Funding Scenarios and Search Strategies for Early Career Researchers and Scholar
Friday, February 02, 2024 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
No matter what your discipline or research interests, starting a research program and getting your first grant(s) can be challenging. Many sponsors recognize this and have programs exclusively for scholars who are just starting out in their independent careers. Planning ahead to take advantage of these opportunities, as well as taking a strategic approach to looking for other opportunities, can help your early efforts to seek funding be more manageable and successful.
This session covers funding scenarios for moving toward independence as a scholar; providing an overview of the special funding opportunities available to early-career scholars from federal agencies, not-for-profits, and professional societies; and highlighting proven strategies and resources for searching for funding opportunities. It also provides an overview of the tools and assistance provided by the Office of Research and Large Center Development to help early career researchers and scholars succeed.
Audience: Early career faculty, Postdocs, PhD Students
