Coffee Hour
Do you have questions about grants, intellectual property issues or compliance regulations? BIRS is hosting monthly coffee talks at Starbucks in Atherton Union. Come let us know what is on your mind and have a cup of coffee on us.

Sponsored Programs 101: Applying for External Funding
At this session, you will learn the process of applying for external grants from start to finish. Topics will include how to choose appropriate funding sources, how to put together the application components, what to expect of the review process, and University guidelines for seeking external funding.

Developing Proposals for Grants and Fellowships
This workshop will teach you the best practices for composing the narrative portions of grant proposals, including the project summary, goals and objectives, methodology, assessment and more.  Special attention will be paid to the differences between research and programmatic proposals.

Sponsored Programs 201: Managing Your Award
Funded projects require proper management so that agency and research compliance guidelines and protocals (IRB, RCR, financial audits, reporting etc...) are met.  Without proper management, the funding agency may fine you or Butler and prohibit future funding.  This session will focus on you to what you need to know to runa a grant smoothly and help keep your projects funded in the future.

Welcome to the Grants Resource Center
This session will introduce you to the Grants Resource Center (GRC), a service of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.  The GRC provides personalized and comprehensive federal and private funding information to increase success rates among faculty and administrators at member institutions.  This session will include information on how to use the GRC's funding database, GrantSearch, and show you how to get the most of the GRC.
