Second Annual Grant Writing Bootcamp participants

Second Annual Grant Writing Bootcamp

The Second Annual Grant Writing Bootcamp, hosted by the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research Compliance (SPARC), was held Sept. 23 at the Holiday Inn Wrightsville Beach.

Twenty-five faculty investigators from across UNCW were selected to attend, including Tammy Arms (SON), Hannah Catalano (SHAHS), Cara Gray (SHAHS), Jared Kerr (SON), Jacquelyn Lee (SSW) and Brandy Mechling (SON) from our college. The day-long workshop featured topics related to identifying, writing and submitting external grant applications.

This initiative was brought to campus by Associate Dean Justine Reel to increase knowledge about grant writing and create networking opportunities across disciplines. These UNCW faculty research scholars will have opportunities to receive training and mentorship throughout the academic year.
