Faculty Outreach & Networking Events (FONE)
Grantseeking through Community of Science (COS), Sep 2010

FONE is a monthly meeting of (women and men) faculty, administrators, and staff. Each session begins with a brief presentation on one of a range of faculty development topics (grantseeking, leadership development, communicating science, etc.) followed by an opportunity to network with Brown colleagues.

Our topic this month is the funding opps database, Community of Science (COS). COS Funding Opportunities is a frequently updated database of funding opportunity announcements from across the disciplines (including the humanities and social sciences). It contains information on awards, fellowships, and grants from federal/non-federal, corporate/private foundation, and international funding sources. COS Funding Alert is a weekly e-mail notification with a customized list of funding opportunities based on specified criteria provided by the individual COS member.
