How to Run a PI Report in PeopleSoft

Proposal Writing Fellowships (Mentored Writing Program)
The proposal writing fellowships are offered through RD&C and the University Writing Program. Through an application process, a limited number of faculty in teams of two (faculty proposal writer and mentor) are selected to engage in a 10-session (one hour each) writing seminar. The goal of the seminar is for each faculty writer to complete a research proposal, with the assistance of a mentor that will be suitable for submission to an external sponsor.
Applications are invited from UND faculty for research fellowships ($1,000 each) to facilitate writing proposals for external funding of their research and scholarly activities.
Application Deadline Date: TBA
Seminar Dates: Spring semester 2014-TBA
- Submit an application as a faculty team (writer and mentor) to RD&C of no more than two pages describing your research/scholarly activity idea.
- Identify the organization you will target for funding.
- List your last three examples of creative activity (e.g. publications, performances) and indicate whether they were peer reviewed and when they occurred.
- Describe your experience with submitting external proposals, including agencies and critiques. Also include a short list of recent proposals submitted by your mentor and indicate which have been successful.
- Discuss the significance of your research/scholarly activity.
- Indicate your availability and commitment to attend at least nine of the 10 seminar sessions.
- Be sure to include the name and the expected contribution of the faculty member who has agreed to serve as your mentor for this fellowship. (Mentors must agree to attend at least five sessions and be available to assist you in writing and developing your proposal outside the seminar. Mentors also will receive $1,000 stipends.)
