Proposal Writing for Success (PROWESS)
Designed for early career faculty in science and engineering. Spread over eleven half-day sessions, it covers a broad range of topics, including proposal writing techniques, a review of prominent funding sources, and proposal preparation practice. Like most of our workshops, PROWESS features presentations from RD staff and faculty, as well as panels of faculty with particularly relevant experience. Applications will be solicited in December, and PROWESS will be held over the summer. Tentatively, we anticipate that PROWESS sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from mid June to early August, with exact dates to be determined based on participants' schedules. Contact stem@research.ucsb.edu for more information.
