Co-sponsored by the Office of Research Development (part of the Office of Research, Economic Development and Graduate Education)
APPLICATIONS DUE BY December 15, 2021!
Go through the grant-writing process from beginning to end while working on your own grant proposal. With feedback from peers and experts, this 5-session workshop over 6 weeks is designed to help novice grant writers understand the requirements of a grant opportunity, collect and create the many parts of a proposal, organize and write about their project, connect with MSU resources, and submit a grant proposal at MSU.
A participant described it as “…a fabulous workshop and learning opportunity.” They say that it “…helped me solidify my ideas and get specific feedback about the research part of my proposal.”

Resources to Help Faculty with the Box Transition to OneDrive
As the university gets closer to its transition away from the storage site Box, University Information Technology would like to remind the MSU community how they can play a part in the successful migration of their data.
January 18, 2022 from 3-6 p.m
The tradition continues. We look forward to gathering with MSU faculty, staff, graduate students, and Bozeman community members to enjoy food and beverages, listen to music, and explore the services offered by MSU Library and our partners. Our theme this year will be a bit different. In the past, we’ve chosen themes centered on classic works of literature, but for 2022, we will broadly celebrate the theme of reading. We've asked partners to select a book and we'll celebrate the joy and importance of reading in our personal, intellectual, and professional lives.
In this section, we are posting some short articles with practical teaching tips:
If you have a teaching tip related to teaching in a blended or online format to share in this section, please send a description and any related resources or examples to [email protected]
