The ADVANCEing Faculty Grant Writing Program targets junior faculty seeking federal funding who have either:

  1. not previously received federal funding, or
  2. are applying for a significantly higher level of federal funding, or
  3. are applying in a new and significantly different program for federal funding.


Participants attend training seminars, receive individual grant writing assistance and will be eligible to apply for a pre-review of their proposal from an external expert in the area of the grant proposal.  In exchange, participants commit to writing and submitting a proposal to a federal funding agency as a principal investigator.  The pre-grant writing training seminar includes an overview of the application and review processes for programs such as NSF, DOD, DOE and NIH.  In addition, it covers suggestions and tips for writing a successful proposal, as well as individual feedback on initial ideas.

LSU has hosted an excellent series of NSF Proposal Writing Webinars in 2010.  Thank to Roger Seals at LSU for permission to post their outstanding PowerPoint slides on our website: Click here for the Web-based Proposal Writing presentation.

Proposal Writing (focuses on education-type projects such as TUES but applicable to CAREER and BRIDGE proposals - lots of great information and advice for anyone writing any NSF proposal)

The National Science Foundation, Louisiana Tech University, and the ADVANCEing Faculty Program in Tech's College of Engineering and Science are sponsoring a one-day workshop on November 30, 2010.   The workshop will provide an overview of the Foundation, its mission, priorities, and budget.  It will cover the NSF proposal and merit review process and NSF programs that cut across disciplines.  Additionally, representatives from the seven NSF directorates will make presentations on their programs and will also be available informally and in breakout sessions for discussions of potential research proposals.  We will also be sponsoring a session during lunch focused on "Creating a Culture of Success for Women in STEM".  Researchers and educators less experienced in proposing to the NSF should find this workshop particularly helpful; however, more experienced proposers and NSF grantees may well find the workshop useful and informative.  Anyone who would like to learn more about the NSF and its programs  is invited to attend.

The workshop will be held in the Student Center on the Louisiana Tech campus.  Registration information will be posted soon.  Please contact the ADVANCEing Faculty Program at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
