ORDE Updates


ORDE is offering three virtual Faculty Seminars this summer. Topics are Writing Specific Aims and Project Overviews; Working with Program Officers; and Revising and Resubmitting Your Grant Proposal. Registration is now open and the first Seminar is on June 24th.


Two institutes within the National Institutes of Health - the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Cancer Institute - have samples of funded applications available for your review. Find links to these invaluable aids on our Sponsor Information Page (under Resources from NIH). 


The National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award Toolkit, a resource developed by ORDE for the benefit of our early career faculty on both the Denver and Anschutz Medical Campuses, has been updated to reflect information provided in the new CAREER program solicitation (including only one July deadline and a more detailed eligibility section). Start with this document if you are planning a CAREER Award proposal this year.


ORDE has released the 2019 version of our ever-popular Sabbatical Support e-Book. Are you sabbatical-dreaming? Start early in the process with our e-book and see what opportunities fit your dreams.


Videos from Spring Semester's ORDE Faculty Seminar Series are now available in our Archive. New Seminar videos include How to Plan for a P01 or Center Grant, the National Science Foundation, Writing a Project Overview and Writing Your Specific Aims. If you missed a session or are looking for a quick refresher, check out the ORDE Video Archive.


ORDE has released an updated version of the National Science Foundation Know Your Agency Brief, a 2-page overview of the agency providing details about focus areas, organization, funding stats, program officer interaction, and the proposal review process. Start here if you are thinking about submitting to NSF.


ORDE has updated our Sample Proposal Checklist, designed to assist you as you are studying funding agency proposal guidelines. The Checklist walks you through the possible agency requirements and specific items that need your consideration (e.g., fonts, margins, deadlines, letters of support). Because it is an editable Word document, this allows you to use the Checklist as a one-stop doc containing all the important parameters for a particular funding opportunity. We hope you find this resource useful.
