The VP-NSF Cohort Program (henceforth, “Cohort”) is a university-wide resource that provides up to 20 faculty with NSF-specific mentoring, skill development, and support. Faculty selected to participate in the one-year program will craft an entire NSF proposal with the objective of submitting it the following year (and/or next cycle). The program is designed for both new faculty and those who are new to pursuing NSF funding.

The Cohort program will build a strong foundation for NSF-engaged faculty, providing Cohort members with critical feedback, resources, and grant-writing/development skills specific to NSF criteria and expectations. Cohort is the first in a series of grant writing resources that will be developed by the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) to target major federal funders including the NEH, NEA, DOD, DOE, etc. Cohort will work to foster a sense of belonging for faculty engaging in federally funded research and encourage consistent and long-term interdisciplinary collaboration.

Sponsoring Office/Unit: Office of the Vice President for Research
