The institute will consist of an introduction to the proposal process, a proposal-writing workshop and sessions on peer review, proposal budgets and processing. The $30 fee for the institute includes lunch. Registration is limited to 15 faculty members and requires a commitment to attend the entire session. Participants must submit a two- to three-page writing assignment in advance; no other preparation is necessary. Reservations may be made by calling Candy Edwards at 333-0284 by Feb. 16.
