GradGrants Center, UGS - Graduate Assistantship, Proposal Development Consultant
THE PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANT is one of four graduate assistants who work directly with fellow graduate students in the GradGrants Center, a graduate student service located in the Wells Library-BL. The Center is sponsored by The Indiana University Graduate School Bloomington and is available to enrolled graduate students at IUB. The consultants handle the day-to-day operations of the GradGrants Center and share training responsibilities (e.g., developing grant-writing content, working one-on-one with graduate students from all disciplines, presenting grant training workshops, preparing visual aids and materials, handling web and social media content). Our consultants assist students in their search for external funding sources and are available to work one-on-one with graduate students in discussing and critiquing their grant proposals.
QUALIFICATIONS: Requirements include successful grant-writing experience, editing skills, teaching experience or experience in planning and presenting special-interest training programs, and the ability and personality to interact well with the public. A one-year commitment to the position is preferred. Those who have received prior Fulbright awards or other competitive national grants are highly desired. We prefer advanced doctoral students who have at least two years in graduate school.
BENEFITS: This position provides an invaluable opportunity to learn about various funding sources and to improve one’s own grant-writing skills. The experience is extremely valuable to future faculty and those who intend to work in non-profit or government fields.
