Propel Research Mentorship Program now accepting applications

The Propel Research Mentorship Program offers in-depth workshops, mentoring and other support throughout the academic year to give new and early-career faculty members an edge as they develop and finalize a grant proposal for submission to the NIH or NSF at the end of the program term. Participants in the program have reported feeling significantly more ready to prepare and submit federal grant proposals, making great connections with their assigned mentors and fellow mentees, and receiving useful feedback and suggestions that helped them sharpen their research plans and proposal writing. Propel applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are due by Friday, August 4. Complete application details are available on the Office of the Vice President for Research website.
