The only chance you may having of getting your research funded is to step outside your traditional territory and diversify your research portfolio.
One non-traditional option is the Department of Defense (DoD), a funding source not commonly associated with academic research, but one that could make the difference between you getting the money you need to conduct your research or starting the grant process all over again.
Although a viable funding source, DoD grants come with their own challenges and obstacles. However, if you had someone that could walk you through the process, and help you overcome the challenges, the task wouldn’t be so daunting. This is where DoD grant recipient and trainer, Susan Wyatt Sedwick, PhD, CRA, CSM, can help.
On Wednesday, December 5th at 1pm ET, Dr. Sedwick is conducting a 60-minute online training session to help PIs significantly improve their chances of landing DoD funding (regardless of their experience).
Here are just a few of the step-by-step DoD grant application completion strategies you’ll receive by attending this upcoming 60-minute online training:
- Identify national security concerns that can restrict your research.
- Pin down how to overcome institutional barriers of some DoD-funded projects (including the new cybersecurity requirements)
- Get strategies to more effectively market your research to DoD mechanisms
- Learn how to more successfully network with DoD officials to boost your funding chances
- Recognize DoD differences between contracts, grants and cooperative agreements
- Master working through your sponsored projects office to facilitate the negotiation of successful agreements
- Improve your overall chances of qualifying for DoD funding
Who Should Attend: This webinar will benefit PIs who are interested in DoD funding and expanding the scope and reach of their research. This webinar will also benefit PIs who are having difficulties applying for DoD funds and need a better understanding of how to work effectively with DoD sponsors and officials.
The DoD and its agencies provide many funding opportunities that will allow you to investigate new scientific avenues that will not only provide additional funding options, but perhaps foster a valuable, long-lasting partnership that could prove to be advantageous for the rest of your career.
What you don’t know could be hurting your chances of conducting the research you want. Don’t wait, register for this must-attend online training session today.
