Hanover Grant Academy

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) and the Center for Research Design and Analysis (CRDA) announce the Academic Year 2023-2024 Hanover Grant Academy. The Academy seeks to discover and encourage individuals of outstanding talent with a keen interest in research. For this academic year cohort, eight to twelve emerging research professionals will be selected to receive individualized mentoring on the grant writing process. Grant funding is an increasingly competitive process in which guided expertise is critical to crafting the most fundable research proposals. The ability to describe one's research in a way that can be understood and valued is critical in the competitive selection process. 

Hanover Research and TWU’s CRDA will facilitate a comprehensive and detailed 44-week mentorship program for the members of the cohort. This program is intended to strengthen emerging researchers’ ability to produce highly credible and fundable research proposals that will not only expand and contribute to knowledge and literature in their respective fields but also bring research prestige and funding to TWU.
