Three SWOSU Employees Attend State Regents' Grant Writing Institute
Three Southwestern Oklahoma State University employees recently attended a week-long Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Grant Writing Institute (GWI).
SWOSU-Sayre Dean Sherron Manning and her administrative assistant, Terry Billey, are writing a proposal for campus improvements, while SWOSU-Weatherford’s Tim Hubin is writing a proposal for scientific research. Each has spent countless hours working on their respective grant proposals and gained a great deal of knowledge on the subject at the institute, which is designed to help employees as they work to gain more money for research and program development.
Twenty participants from ten institutions attended the annual institute, which began in 2005, and provides faculty and administrators from Oklahoma’s public and private higher education institutions with one-on-one training from successful grant proposal-writing mentors. Since 2005, more than 200 people have participated in the institute.
