Grantsmanship Events

A series of grantsmanship workshops are hosted throughout the year by the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships. Many of these workshops are particularly useful for new faculty or those new to the research process at Purdue.

We also provide sessions under our Convergence Track. These events provide best practices and networking opportunities as they pertain to funding agencies, national labs, FFRDCs, and other proposal development partners. Convergence Track workshops can be useful for faculty at all stages of their career looking to decode different federal organizations that can be highly valuable in their funding pursuits.

For further information and to register for an upcoming workshop, click on the link below. Please note that registration becomes available approximately one month prior to the event, at which point the workshop title becomes a hyperlink.

When possible, an archive of each presentation is available from the Past Events list below.
