Web Seminar for Government Grants Including Those for New Farmers

CSREES is hosting a web based grantsmanship workshop on April 6, 2009 for the BFRDP program.  The webinar will begin with a brief description of the different types of grants, application submission requirements, and a brief description of the application peer review process.  Time will be reserved for questions and answers.

Date and time: April 6th, 2009 between 2 - 3.30 pm Eastern time

Equipment needed:

Your computer should have DSL / Cable line or better.  A dial up modem will not work, unfortunately

You’ll also need Flashware software on your computer, version 9 or better.  Most computers have this or it can be downloaded free

You can also check the official computer requirements

A headset is best for hearing the presentations but your computer speakers will also work (may need turn up the volume)

Test in advance: We suggest you test out your equipment anytime before the meeting by logging on to http://www.extension.iastate.edu/testconnect/

This would be the time to check the Flashware, for example, and download it if it’s not on your computer.

Log on to http://connect.extension.iastate.edu/csrees/ a few minutes before 2 pm on April 6th.

Additional Information: the closing date for submitting applications to BFRDP is 5 p.m. on May 13, 2009.  Only electronic applications through www.grants.gov are accepted.  You need to be registered with www.grants.gov to submit an application.
