UC Davis Online Leadership Program
To assist faculty interested in future research center grants and directorship positions, the College of Engineering will fund a limited number of registrations to the Situational Leadership Online Certificate Course (September 29 - November 30, 2021).
Interested faculty at the Associate and Full Professor level are invited to upload a letter of interest and CV by Tuesday, September 21st.
Preparing Research Center Grant Proposals
Faculty interested in developing research center concepts for convergent research and submitting large center grant proposals may find the resources listed below quite useful. The "Making the Leap to Large" workshop funded by NSF addressed how to deliver on intellectual merits and broader impacts at scale for diverse stakeholders, and how to avoid submitting a "large" proposal (particularly in the $4-$10 million range) that is made up of smaller proposals cobbled together.
