D.C. DAYS PROGRAM
The CFAES Ofﬁce for Research and Graduate Education and the Grant Development Support Unit (GDSU) are pleased to announce D.C. Days 2024.
This program is an opportunity for faculty researchers from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) to become more competitive by visiting federal program ofﬁcers and federal funding agencies in Washington D.C. This allows the researcher to determine if their basic research concept is a good match to the sponsor’s mission, seek advice concerning project design and appropriate funding tracks, and better understand the peer review process. This is an excellent opportunity for networking and to increase your grant writing skills.
We hope to provide this experience to 10 CFAES faculty, determined through the competitive application process. Applications are accepted from any interested faculty member; however, priority is given to those with the rank of Assistant Professor, especially those who have grant writing experience.
