New NIH Biosketch
The new NIH Biosketch format goes into effect January 25, 2015
NIH has approved a new Biosketch format. You can use either the current or new format for now, but the new is required starting January 25. Changes include a 5 page limit and the new section Contributions to Science that will take the place of Publications. The new template has been added to the OR's templates page and more information can be found on the NIH website such as FAQs and Samples.
*UPDATE* Due to concerns regarding the amount of time given to implement this new format, NIH will still accept the old biosketch for proposals due on January 25, 2015. The new biosketch will be required for due dates on or after May 25, 2015. (NOT-OD-15-032)

First in the World
- $3.2 million from the US Department of Education’s FIPSE First in the World program designed to spur the development of innovations that improve educational outcomes and make college more affordable for students and families. KSU’s program, led by Jennifer Wade-Berg, Assistant Professor of Human Services and Campus Executive Director of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, aims to increase institutional transfer rates by 25% and shorten time to degree attainment for underrepresented (in terms of race and ethnicity) and low-income students who transfer to KSU from two-year colleges. KSU will develop an integrated service delivery model with Enrollment Services Specialists, Transfer Graduation Coaches, Peer Mentors, and Transfer Learning Community and Peer Transfer Advisors working with the target group of 4,000 students over the four-year grant period.
