Information Sessions

Each semester we offer 8–10, hour-long classes, which are designed to assist you with all areas of research development. Topics include budget planning, broader impact opportunities, supplementary documents, research compliance, and more. The schedule varies and is often updated a month prior to classes beginning.

Information sessions have ended for the 2023–2024 academic year. We will announce upcoming sessions as we get closer to Fall 2024, but for now please review our growing archive of past sessions which we have recorded and made available below.
