Sept. 26: 1 - 2:30 p.m.
Sept. 27: 1:30 - 3 p.m.
Room 309, Texas Tech Library

Did you know? 50% of NSF and 80% of NIH funding is awarded through unsolicited, investigator-initiated proposals. Funders want to fund good research, no matter how they learn about it. There is no need to wait until a formal call for proposals is announced to share your research project idea. Learn about and practice developing an effective concept paper to discuss with the program officer by attending one of these two sessions. If you are interested in participating, send your RSVP to rdt.vpr@ttu.edu by Sept. 14th.
