Spring 2020 RAFT Foundations Cohort Application Window Opening 12/10/19

UF’s Division of Sponsored Programs and Contracts & Grants will once again offer a professional development series that provides university-wide Research and Sponsored Program Administrators with one year or less experience with “a lifeline” to the research community.  This program is designed to provide a thorough introduction to all aspects of sponsored programs management at UF and to foster peer relationships within the grants community.

“It’s Raft-a-licious!  But seriously, its more than you thought you could learn about grants in such a short time.” – M.. Kasicki, Fall 2018 RAFT Foundations Cohort

“You’ll be on the right path after RAFT!” – T. Dixon, Fall 2019 RAFT Foundations Cohort

“By attending RAFT as a brand new RA, I feel I really now know something!”   – B. Milito, Fall 2019 RAFT Cohort

Application submission deadline is January 10, 2020.  The 21-session program will run from January – May, 2020.  Read the Spring 2020 RAFT Cohort Syllabus for more information.
