New course announcement

Posted: December 12, 2014 by joshuasites in Announcements, Fellowships, Grants, Research Study
The Office of Competitive Awards and Research (IUCARE) has designed a 2 credit course for which the primary objective is completing an application for a nationally-competitive award. Awards fund a wide range of activities such as conducting summer research with an NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates or taking part in a Fulbright summer institute in the UK. Students who successfully complete the course will have completed an application or be ready to apply for an award.
The course is COLL X 288, “Apply for Competitive Award,” and it is being offered during both 8 week sessions of spring 2015. Grades will be S/F and will be determined by assessment of three short written assignments and participation in classroom group activities.  Both 8 week sessions will meet MWF in Sycamore 003 from 1:15-2:15.

The Women’s Philanthropy Council seeks to fund critical needs, new ventures, and innovative solutions to social problems. In particular, the Council hopes to award grants that will advance its belief that all members of the Indiana University community should have access to quality educational opportunities, excellent health care, a clean and safe environment, cultural enrichment through the arts, and educational programs and services that allow them to pursue their academic careers. Applications that propose to give back and provide unique opportunities to the university community are especially welcome.

The WPC expects to award up to $100,000 in grants during this academic year’s granting cycle. Awards may range from $2,500 to $100,000.

 All Indiana University community members on all campuses — students, faculty, and staff — with the vision and capacity to manage and effectively utilize a grant are encouraged to apply.
