BATON ROUGE–This month, 18 faculty members—representing five CHSE schools and one institute--have been selected to attend LSU’s Office of Research & Economic Development’s Summer Institute.

"I am very excited about the large number of CHSE faculty who applied to become ORED Summer Institute Fellows," says CHSE Associate Dean of Research & Graduate Studies Arend Van Gemmert, PhD. "We have the largest cohort of any college."

During the institute, faculty will receive advanced training in a range of topics including determining the best funding sources, elements of successful grant proposal, drafting a compelling narrative, navigating the grant submission process, generating a budget, institutional Review Board approval and post-award management.

"The four-week program aims to improve proposal writing skills with intensive workshops," Van Gemmert says. "Afterward, the fellows submit their proposals to funding agencies. Our faculty's participation in this competitive program shows their tremendous dedication to research."
