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
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.
