If you are planning to submit funding requests for your research and other projects before the end of the year or in early January, please let Lisa Stephany know as soon as you can. She is available to assist all economics faculty and staff (both CALS and LAS) with their external funding needs for research and projects. And contact her if you have a proposal deadline approaching so she can help with a timeline, required documents and university approvals.
Also, the CARES (College of Agriculture [& Life Sciences] Research Excellence Support) Team is working hard to become more proactive in the search for funding opportunities. The team is available to help with targeted proposal opportunities and searches for funding opportunities. These will not replace the more broad email updates that are shared regularly, but instead, will be an additional resource that will provide more relevant opportunities to specific research interests.
The team is creating a database of the faculty they support and their specific research interests, so they can reach out in a more focused manner when these types of opportunities become available.
If you have specific areas of interest, key words, or specific subject matter, please email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will update the CARES files to include you in future communications.
Lisa is located in 581 Heady Hall. Contact her at email@example.com or 515-294-6175.
Lisa is available at any time via phone call or email. She also holds office hours on Tuesday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m. and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
