The GMR Outreach Awards are rolling in – we’ll continue to post them on our website as they approved by the NNCO. The Express Outreach Award and Technology Improvement Award are both live and we’re accepting applications until Monday, September 12. The Professional Development Award is next on our radar and will be posted soon.

If you’re looking for some guidance for how to fill out these applications, look no further. Our Community Outreach Librarian, Bobbi Newman, will lead a training session tailored specifically for our current awards. The workshop, “Writing Successful Grant Applications”, will be offered on two dates: Friday, August 26, at 11:00 AM CST; and Thursday, September 1, at 1:00 PM. Each course will last about 90 minutes, but that’s including plenty of time at the end for questions. Bobbi will explain what we’re looking for in outreach applications and give some tips to help you apply for these awards.

Please click here to register for the course and give Bobbi an idea of what you’d like to learn. To connect to the webinar, go here. At the login screen, choose “Enter as a Guest” and type in your name. Call-in information will be available in the room.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the current outreach awards, about Bobbi’s course, or just about live in general. Shoot us an e-mail at gmr-lib@uiowa.edu or ring us at (319) 353-4479.
