Dear CGRER Members,
Today we take the opportunity to announce a new CGRER initiative, a Large Grant Development Program being offered in conjunction with assistance from the UI Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development (OVPRED). Attached you will find the announcement for this new program awarding grants of up to $30,000 each. The objective of this program is to facilitate the development of large grant proposals with relevance to the CGRER environmental mission. The application due date is January 16, 2018, and submissions will be reviewed by CGRER and OVPRED leadership.
An informational session is being planned for Monday, November 13th from 2-3:00 in UCC 2670 (within the OVPRED office) as an opportunity to discuss further with CGRER Directors and the Research Development Office Coordinator. Please RSVP to Amy Parker so that we may plan accordingly for additional sessions as might be needed.
We would appreciate your assistance relaying this announcement to interested persons so they may apply. We would also appreciate if you would reply notifying us of your interest in responding to this grant opportunity by December 1 so that we may gauge level of interest in this new program. If you have any questions, please reply to this email to Amy Parker in the CGRER office.
Jerald L. Schnoor and Gregory R. Carmichael,
