IAP Version of Getting Funding for your Research

MIT has a wonderful tradition of offering a variety of short courses during the Winter hiatus between semesters, known as IAP (Independent Activities Period). These range from how-to sessions, forums, athletic endeavors, lecture series, films, tours, recitals and contests. The MIT Libraries are offering dozens of courses on data and information management (among other topics) — I participated in a roundtable session on data management.

IAP period seems like an opportunity pass on some of the invisible knowledge of the academy; things like project management for science; managing bibliographies; care and feeding of professional networks; maintaining your tenure file; responding to reviewers; turning a dissertation into a book; communicating your work to the public & media; or writing compelling proposals.

So, for this year’s session, I updated my long-running “Getting Funding for your Research Course” with new resources, statistics, and MIT-specific information. This short course focuses on the area of communicating research projects and ideas in the form of proposals for support. The slides are below:

I aim to convert this to a webinar this year. Also, many of the main points are summarized in an article I’d written a few years ago, “Funding, Funding“.
