Workshops to offer funding tips for SEA, OURC awards


Faculty, students and staff seeking funding for research, scholarship and creative activity are invited to attend two workshops that will offer tips on how to make Student Enhancement Award (SEA) and Ohio University Research Council (OURC) proposals competitive for funding.

The OURC workshop (for faculty and staff) will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 6, in the Faculty Commons at Alden Library, Room 301U. The SEA workshop (for students) will be held from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (repeat session) on Tuesday, Jan. 17, in the same location.

Both award programs are funded by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Creative Activity/Dean of the Graduate College.

The workshops will cover program guidelines and best practices for submitting proposals. Staff will review common issues that can make the difference between an application being funded or denied. Participants also will have the opportunity to discuss their project ideas.

The OURC awards support new projects in all disciplines. Eligible applicants include faculty and full-time administrative staff, with priority on newer faculty. The maximum award is $8,000.

The deadline for submitting a proposal for the 2012 OURC winter cycle is Thursday, Jan. 26. Please visit http://www.ohio.edu/research/ourc.cfm to access program guidelines and forms.

For questions about the OURC workshop, contact Eleni Zulia at 740-593-0929 or zulia@ohio.edu.

The SEA awards support undergraduate, graduate and medical student research, scholarship and creative activities. Awards of up to $6,000 may fund research and travel for a student and mentor to attend a professional meeting to present results. 

The deadline for the SEA awards is 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17. Please visit http://www.ohio.edu/research/communications/sea.cfm to access program guidelines and forms.
