IBS to support up to $5,000 for two topical workshops in 2024-2025

Calling all IBS Fellows! The Institute of Behavioral Science is now accepting applications for funds to support topical workshops. Workshops must be held in the 2024-2025 academic year and be built around existing funding opportunities. IBS is expected to have up to $5,000 in support for two workshops over this time period.

The deadline to apply is Sunday, June 30, 2024.

IBS is especially interested in supporting:

  1. The development of large-scale, team science endeavors with strong funding potential.
  2. Projects that include collaborations between IBS Research Programs and/or Centers.
  3. Projects that include collaborations across CU Boulder or with other CU campuses.
  4. Diverse teams in terms of discipline, rank, or otherwise.
  5. Efforts that include time for research development conversations with a core group, in addition to time for a broader, campus-wide conversation on the topical area.

The funds may cover honorariums, transportation and lodging for participants. Graduate student salary is an acceptable expense, but faculty salary is not. Fellows are encouraged to seek matching funds if additional support is needed.

Proposal Requirements:

  1. Workshop title
  2. Workshop goal
  3. Significance and potential impact of the longer-term project to the state-of-knowledge
  4. Description of target funding opportunity, including anticipated submission date. NOTE: Target funding opportunity must provide full indirect cost recovery and project must be led by IBS.
  5. Possible key participants (both on and off campus)
  6. Format of workshop
  7. Budget (1-page), with a list of major budget items and a brief justification (reach out to your pre/post award specialist for support)
