(Sept. 4, 2012) -- As part of the UTSA 2016 strategic plan to expand and diversify funding resources, the Office of Foundation Relations and Office of Corporate Engagement will offer one-hour "Nosh and Learn" information sessions for faculty and staff interested in pursuing foundation or corporate support for their research or outreach projects. Snacks will be provided at the sessions.

The sessions will provide information on identifying funding sources and faculty-staff roles for building relationships with corporations and private foundations, as well as review what projects are suitable for private support. Faculty and staff are encouraged to bring any concepts, executive summaries or abstracts they wish to pursue funding in fiscal year 2013.
