The process of applying for federal funding can often be a confusing and frustrating one. This workshop will try to demystify the funding process by covering the following topics: 1) understanding federal funding, 2) applying for funding, 3) writing a proposal, and 4) managing a funded effort. Stefanie will share tips, thoughts, and insights from the various stages of her career, encompassing her early efforts at applying for funding, her time managing a funded effort, and her current role in reviewing and supporting funded research.
