School of Science Faculty Grant-writing Workshop Series

Fall 2015 Schedule

Each workshop will be held in the School of Science conference room (SCP-104) on the 2nd Thursday and 4th Monday of each month. These workshops will be interactive discussions on each topic, incorporating resources from TCNJ applicants. All School of Science faculty members should feel free to come with questions and in-progress writing ideas.

To aid in planning for the number and diversity of attendees, please RSVP to Dr. Nadine Dalrymple (E-mail:; telephone: x2905) prior the workshops if possible.  All School of Science faculty members are welcome, however, so please drop-in last minute even if you did not RSVP.  In addition, if you are already planning/thinking of attending multiple workshops, please complete the single-question Qualtrics survey.
