Federal Agency Week at MTSU April 6-9, 2015

The Office of Research Services at MTSU is pleased to announce that we will be hosting videoconferencing and teleconferencing sessions with staff from three federal agencies:
  • The Department of Justice (DOJ)
  • The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)
  • The US Department of Education (ED)

There will also be an introductory session, presented by ORS staff, on Grants 1010. The Grants 1010 session is open only to MTSU faculty/staff, but the sessions with federal agencies are open to faculty and staff at nearby universities.  Sessions are free of charge, but registration is required. A flyer for the event is available here.
