Training Opportunities

The Office of the Vice President for Research and its Division of Sponsored Programs offer a variety of training -- i.e., presentations, workshops, and Web-based resources -- to guide UI faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to identify, secure, and manage external funds. Such training is available through the channels described below.

Newer research administrators are welcome to contact DSP in order to arrange a one-on-one or small group session for training in matters related to sponsored projects at the University.
