Workshops for Graduate and Professional Students

Currently enrolled Carolina graduate and professional students at all levels seeking fellowships, dissertation support, research grants, travel, and other awards are welcome to attend a Funding Information Workshop. We provide general instruction on getting the most out of our online databases and resources, with a focus on the Carolina Internal Funding Database, COS Pivot, and the Successful Proposals Collection.

Unless otherwise noted, all regularly scheduled workshops are held in the Health Sciences Library, room 307. Wait listed students are welcome to attend but are not guaranteed access to a lab computer during the presentation.
