Hosted by the AASCU Grants Resource Center
The GRC Funding Competitiveness Conference offers attendees a chance to network with fellow GRC colleagues while also providing access to a wide range of federal agencies that support programs such as NSF’s undergraduate STEM programs; NEH’s Digital Humanities program; the Department of Education’s FY 14 funding prospects; and a 2-hour NIH grantsmanship workshop that will include a proposal review segment.

About the Conference

Twenty Targeted Sessions

Insight from federal leaders—and details on upcoming competitions—will position you to compete for funding from the U.S. Departments of Defense, Education, Energy and Labor, as well as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Endowment for the Humanities, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Discussions will focus on the federal budget, foundation funding, responsible conduct in research, and international programs.

Structured Networking Events

Private Consultations
