New STAR program for senior faculty to provide an insider view of federal research center grants
The Office of the Vice President for Research is proud to support University of South Carolina faculty researchers at all stages of their careers. Recently, we announced the Propel Research Mentorship Program to help early-career faculty develop effective proposals for large NIH and NSF grants. Our second new program, called STAR, or the Series on Training for Advanced Research program, is designed to support more senior faculty members who are interested in learning more about applying for and running an interdisciplinary, federally funded research center. The STAR program will provide a series of four workshops presented by UofSC faculty members who have secured funding for and managed major federal research centers. Through these workshops, presenters will share their insights on every aspect of managing center grants. Any faculty member may nominate any number of senior faculty members who meet the eligibility criteria for STAR (self-nominations are not allowed). For more information on the new STAR program, including the workshop schedule and speakers, and nomination instructions, visit the Office of the Vice President for Research website. Complete nomination packages are due by Friday, September 10, 2021.
