New Jr. Faculty Workshop Incentive Program

Grant Writing Essentials is a five-part workshop series led by Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) Program Manager Stanley Geidel. In order to increase the number of Junior Faculty Members educated in grant writing and to further increase the number of quality external grant submissions, SPO is pleased to offer an incentive to Junior Faculty Members who attend these workshops.

Junior Faculty members who attend Parts 1 - 4 of the Grant Writing Essentials workshops are eligible to receive $250 in their Researcher Incentive Account (RIA) for extramural expenses. Further, an additional $250 will be made available to Junior Faculty members who submit an external grant proposal within 18 months of attending the series.

  • Junior Faculty members in their first, second, or third year of receiving a new appointment (tenure‐track or full‐time contract).
  • Those faculty moving from contract to tenure‐track status are considered eligible as junior faculty, again, in their first three years of receiving a tenure‐track position.
