Grant Budgeting 101

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

You’ve started writing a grant proposal and discovered you can make the pitch, but when you get to the budget form you freeze.  Budgeting is an essential piece of grant-writing that is often ignored or left to the last minute, resulting in a “less than competitive” application.  In some ways, the project budget and justification can be as important as the proposal narrative itself. In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of writing a proposal budget, including:

  • The budget’s basic components
  • How to estimate costs realistically
  • How to determine which costs are allowable (or not)
  • What other financial documents you may need to submit

Edith Gonzalez, Executive Director of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, will lead the discussion.

Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  •    Project documentation
  •    Version control
  •    Pre-Analysis plans
  •    Open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.

This workshop is aimed at graduate students and post docs, across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

Speaker: Courtney Soderberg

Courtney is the Statistical and Methodological Consultant at the Center for Open Science and heads up their training programs for reproducible research methods. She has a Ph.D. in Experimental Social Psychology with a minor in Quantitative Psychology from UC Davis.

Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate.

Please RVSP as space is limited.
