SWOSU Hosts CGR
April 16, 2009
The Council on Grantsmanship and Research (CGR) recently met on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
The SWOSU Office of Sponsored Programs hosted the meeting.
The mission of the council is to provide a network of support to advance grantsmanship and research among Oklahoma's undergraduate institutions of higher education. The council discusses different external funding institutional policies and procedures, identifies potential funding sources and collaborative opportunities, analyzes funding trends, highlights barriers and opportunities to increase grantsmanship and research on Oklahoma campuses, and engages in professional development.
Guest presenters at the meeting were Brian Lopina and Robert J. Horn of Patton Boggs LLP, attorneys at law, in Washington, D.C. They spoke on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus funding opportunities and how regional universities might participate.
Fifteen university administrators attend the spring meeting.
