Research Development - Outreach Services - Grants Day

Grants Day:


Our office sponsors a “Grants Day” seminar in the Fall and Spring semesters, to promote multi-investigator research and help faculty, students, and staff develop competitive proposals. Representatives from federal agencies, in addition to UCF faculty members, are invited to speak on available funding opportunities, share successful collaborative experiences, and provide guidance on preparing and submitting winning proposals.
