FCGR Fall Workshops & Events

The broader impacts workshop scheduled for next Wednesday, October 17th, has been postponed. The event will be moved to the week of November 11-15th with further details to be announced. Feel free to reach out with any questions/concerns….

Broader Impacts with the Center for Civic Engagement
New date: the week November 11-15th (actual date, time and place TBD)
The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) and Foundation, Corporate, and Government Relations (FCGR) will team up to offer insights on strengthening the ‘broader impacts’ component of grant proposals. FCGR will offer their expertise on the grant process and requirements (what does ‘broader impacts’ mean, how do you incorporate it in your applications, and are there samples and templates available?) The CCE will help you think through the community engagement process (how do I find community partners, how do you structure a community-based program, and what resources exist at the University that can allow your community-engaged program to survive beyond the grant?). This session will help you think through how community engagement in your teaching and research can inform and enrich your proposal writing.

Grant Funding for Staff
December 3rd from 3pm – 4pm, location TBD
Seeking support for projects, programs, or research needs led by a UR staff member? This session is designed for staff members wishing to pursue grant funds and will provide an overview of FGCR services, i.e., how to find funding, deciphering guidelines and compliance, building a budget, navigating the internal review/approval process, how to submit applications, and what happens when an award is offered.
