FALL 2017 UPCOMING EVENTS
The Center will host a Spring 2018 workshop to support faculty who want to pursue private foundation funding.
The workshop will be held in partnership with the University’s Office of Research and Engagement and the Office of Corporate and Foundation Engagement. Staff from these offices will assist in identifying potential private foundation funders for your project and with proposal writing.
To participate in the workshop, faculty must submit a short application by Monday, Dec. 4 at 5 pm est. Project proposals may be from any discipline and participation is open to all UTK and UTIA faculty.
The Howard Baker Grand Policy Challenge (HBGPC) is a challenging, fun, educational research program that requires a semester-long commitment.
Winners will be chosen by a team of experts and will receive cash prizes to further their proposed policy solutions as follows: Grand prize = $3,000 and two runner-ups = $1,000 each.
