Attendance and participation in this event is required for all faculty intending to apply for VGN Pilot and Project Award funding for June 1, 2019-May 31, 2020.
The format of this workshop is to provide intensive and constructive feedback on your VGN Pilot and Project Award proposals. Faculty will work in small groups with research advisors and other investigators in similar disciplines to review and critique the foundation of their proposal.
Prospective applicants will prepare a two-page “pitch paper” of their proposal that includes the specific aims, significance, and innovation of the research. This will be required, and the deadline must be met in order to participate in the workshop. The “pitch paper” must be submitted to your BPI coordinator no later than October 26. This will be required, and the deadline must be met in order to participate in the workshop. Participation in the workshop is required if you plan to submit a Pilot or Project Award proposal to VGN in February.
Small groups will review each of the proposals and then spend approximately 45 minutes on improving and revising each proposal at the workshop. Participants will receive the other proposals two weeks before the workshop to provide enough time to review them and to participate in critiques in the small group. A guide for review will be sent out with the pitch papers.
