Not a Retreat but a Forward: Grant Writing in Tight Times

The second annual AGEP “Not a Retreat but a Forward” was held on Saturday January 26, 2008 at the Kelley School of Business. The workshop combined 17 students from both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses. This year’s theme, "Grant Writing in Tight Times", included topics ranging from “The Proposal Development Process” to “Funding: Types and Tools”. One workshop, “Creating your Profile”, informed students on how to effectively navigate through the Community of Science 24,000 records worth over $33 billion in grants.

Students additionally enjoyed rock climbing at Hoosier Heights and Hibachi-style dinner at DOMO Sushi restaurant.

One student commented: "Grant Proposal Development Process by Dr. Kathryn Wilson (Executive Director Center for Research & Learning, IUPUI) was definitely the best presentation…in terms of thinking about my own dissertation proposal. Despite the technical difficulties, creating my personalized funding alerts with Ms. Alicia Gahimer (Research Development Specialist, IUPUI) was also very useful."
