As part of OPD’s mission to support research and proposal development, we organize workshops and presentations on topics including identifying funding sources and grantsmanship, as well as topics focused on specific funding agencies (e.g., NSF, NIH, DOD), funding mechanisms (e.g., NSF CAREER, NIH K), and disciplines (e.g., Social Sciences).

To provide additional support to early-career faculty, we offer soup-to-nuts services that include a series of workshops and one-on-one support for NSF CAREER and NIH K award applications.

Additionally, OPD organizes events and workshops to provide faculty with the opportunity to network and build research teams with other researchers (e.g., Quantum Immersion Workshop) and to interact with program officers (e.g., DOD Day).
