Webinar on developing proposals for Strategic Initiative Seed Grants, Dec. 20

December 08, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A webinar on the request-for-proposals process for University Strategic Initiative Seed Grants will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Participants can join the "Developing Proposals for Strategic Initiative Seed Grants" webinar from their PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android device at https://psu.zoom.us/j/388444756.

Penn State's Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost is making funds available through seed grants to fund pilot projects that support the University’s 2016-2020 Strategic Plan, Our Commitment to Impact. The University’s Strategic Plan Oversight Committee invites the Penn State community to work with the appropriate Steering Committees to develop initiative proposals.

Proposals may be submitted by any current Penn State faculty member, staff member, or student. Proposals should clearly demonstrate how the initiative promotes one or more of the plan’s thematic priorities (advancing the arts and humanities, driving digital innovation, enhancing health, stewarding our planet’s resources, and transforming education) or supporting elements (constituent outreach and engagement, infrastructure and support, and organizational processes). Proposals should explicitly integrate one or more of the plan’s foundations (enabling access to education, engaging our students, fostering and embracing a diverse world, enhancing global engagement, driving economic development, and ensuring a sustainable future).

The webinar will be hosted by members of the Strategic Plan Steering Committees. Visit http://strategicplan.psu.edu/rfp for more information about the request-for-proposals process.
