IGERT Workshop Follow-up
Approximately 50 faculty and staff attended a workshop March 10 on issues related to the NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT) announcement. A follow-up meeting will feature Marvin Parnes from OVPR, Cynthia Cross from Rackham and Dave Plawchan from DRDA to discuss specific issues, such as cost sharing, student recruitment, budget and FastLane. An optional component will allow applicants to work in small groups to discuss narrative issues such as assessment and management. The workshop will be offered 810 a.m. May 9 in the East Conference Room, Rackham Bldg. A light breakfast will be served.
Please register for the workshop at currently enrolling workshops on the Web at www.research.umich.edu.
An e-mail group was created of potential submitters, and will be used to alert members about upcoming internal deadlines and contacts, and additional proposal development opportunities. If you did not register for the March 10 workshop and would like to be added to the e-mail group, please contact Chris Black at firstname.lastname@example.org. The tentative deadline for IGERT pre-proposals is June 28.
