Board of Regents - General Information Webinar & Ask a Program Manager


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, BoRSF program managers are unable to travel for regional meetings with staff and faculty related to grant and endowment funding opportunities. Please ensure that all individuals interested in discussing programs and projects with program managers know they are welcome to email or call at their convenience through October 15, the final day for questions about current-cycle RFPs. Contact information for individual program managers is available in the RFPs and on our website; questions may also be submitted via our support system, by emailing


To provide additional opportunities for faculty and staff to learn and ask questions about BoRSF programs, we are also hosting two types of online informational sessions:

September 3, 10:00 a.m.: General Information Webinar


Brief overview of Support Fund competitive programs and best practices, followed by Q&A with Carrie Robison, Deputy Commissioner for Sponsored Programs. The virtual meeting space can accommodate up to 500 participants, and registration is required. The link above will take you to the registration page and the webinar. The session will also be recorded and posted on the Board of Regents’ YouTube channel. We will send the link to the video to campus sponsored programs offices as soon as it is available, or it can be accessed directly on YouTube.
