|RDS Brownbag Series - NIH Attachments||Webinar_Workshop Handout||
The NIH Attachments webinar will provide an overview of the supplemental documents required for most NIH applications including the Biosketch, Authentication of Key Biological and Chemical Resources, Resource Sharing Plan, Vertebrate Animals section, and the Human Subjects attachments for clinical trials and clinical research. Participants will learn the information that must be provided in each attachment, how to distinguish between the information to be included in the Research Strategy versus the attachments, and how the information contained in the attachments factors into the Overall application score.
|2018-2019 RDS Brown Bag Series: " Large and Complex Proposals"||Webinar_Workshop Handout||
Collaborating across disciplines has become critical for advancing science and addressing complex questions. Research funding opportunities from most federal sponsors have reflected this shift to "team science" with calls for multi- and inter-disciplinary proposals. This session will provide an overview of preparing for and submitting these often large and complex proposals.

2018-2019 PIVOT Funding Database Training Pivot training workshops are open to campus (faculty, staff, and students) interested in obtaining an introduction to the funding database. The database includes, on average, more than $50 billion in available funding opportunities covering all research, creative, and scholarly activity. Users can create custom searches, save those searches, identify potential collaborators, and use the Pivot Advisor – a profile specific list of funding opportunities. Pivot is available for free to UA employees and students.
|2018-2019 RDS Brown Bag Series: "Faculty Honors & Awards"||Webinar_Workshop Handout||

|2018-2019 NSF S-STEM Preparation Program: "S-STEM Awareness"||Webinar_Workshop Handout||
NSF S-STEM Preparation Program: "S-STEM Awareness" Are you a STEM faculty member who is interested in broadening participation of underrepresented groups in your STEM discipline while providing them with the financial support necessary to graduate? This workshop will help you to understand the NSF S-STEM solicitation and requirements for submitting a competitive proposal. The UA is limited to one proposal (either as a single institution or as subawardee or a member of a Collaborative Research project) from each constituent school or college that awards degrees in an eligible field, so this workshop will help you to be competitive for the internal limited submission competition, and if chosen, an award of up to $5M from NSF.
|2018-2019 NEH Fellowships: "Humanities Research in the Mid-21st Century"||Webinar_Workshop Handout||
2018-2019 NEH Fellowships: "Humanities Research in the Mid-21st Century" Humanities scholars across fields will explore methods and approaches to develop competitive proposals for the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) Fellowships program. Considering recent trends in NEH funding and the agency’s increased focus on rigor and impact, faculty will: 1) explore methods to situate humanities research within a mid-21st century funding context; 2) examine strategies to adapt individual research goals to effectively address NEH guidelines and review criteria; and 3) review tools and resources available to strengthen proposals. In addition, a NEH Program Officer will be available (participating by Zoom) to respond to questions from interested faculty.
|2018-2019 NIH R Series Grant Preparation Program: "Rigor & Reproducibility"||Webinar_Workshop Handout||
NIH R Series Grant Preparation Program: "Rigor & Reproducibility" The Rigor & Reproducibility webinar will provide an overview of the NIH components of Rigor and Reproducibility and how to successfully craft an application to best address the individual requirements. Participants will learn about upcoming changes to the NIH requirements for rigor & reproducibility that will go into effect for applications due on or after 1/25/2019, as well as how and where to emphasize the components of rigor & reproducibility in an application, examples of biological variables, and how to craft the authentication of key biological and/or chemical resources plan.
