Here is the message from the webinar organizers. Please also the link for serving as a review panelist.
I wanted to pass along the registration link to the USDA-NIFA Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Education Grants Program FY24 Request for Application (RFA) Technical Assistance Webinar, which will be held from 2-3pm ET on December 6th. During this webinar, we will discuss the purpose and priorities of the HSI grant program, eligibility information, grant types supported, application details and submission, the evaluation process, and resources for preparing an application. Please share widely with your contacts who might be interested in applying to or learning more about the HSI Education Grants Program.

The Spencer Foundation
Overview of Webinar: The Spencer Foundation works to investigate ways in which education can be improved around the world. There is a great dedication to research, as it is necessary for the improvement of education. The Spencer Foundation supports research programs in high-quality investigations of education. By awarding research grants, and fellowships the foundation strengthens the connections in education research, policy and practice through communications and networking. The foundation awards a series of prestigious fellowships to early career education researchers, typically pre-tenured professors at research institutions. Each fellowship is for a total of $55,000 and is for one or two years depending on the preference of the recipient. The fellowship relieves the researcher from a year’s worth of teaching responsibilities to pursue an innovative and important education research project. The foundation also awards a series of prestigious fellowships to doctoral students completing dissertation research in any area of education research. Each fellowship is for $25,000 and supports individuals in the final year of their doctoral training.
Targeted Audience: All CUNY Faculty and Doctoral students engaged in research and training on educational research and research on quality learning; racial and justice equity; human work and learning; state and federal policy.
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY APPS and Xia Li, Associate Professor, Early Childhood Education, Brooklyn College

The NSF Enabling Partnerships to Increase Innovation Capacity (EPIIC) program is hosting an informational webinar on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2023, at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. In this session, program directors will provide an overview about the preliminary proposal submission process, program eligibility, and what we look for when we review proposals. We invite you to submit your questions when you register by entering them into the questions and comments field on the registration page.
Real-time captions will be available. For other reasonable accommodations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
About the EPIIC Program
Launched by the NSF Directorate for Technology, Innovation and Partnerships (TIP), the EPIIC program aims to provide institutions with training and networking support to develop the capacity and institutional knowledge needed to help build more inclusive ecosystems and enable participation in regional innovation ecosystems, potentially connecting to NSF Regional Innovation Engines. This solicitation aims to provide MSIs, PUIs, and two-year institutions with limited or no research capacity with the support necessary to become equitable partners with teams competing under the current and subsequent NSF Engines program funding opportunities.
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY APPS and GrantForward President, Kevin Chang
Target Audience: All CUNY Faculty
Date: Wednesday, September 13 at 12:00 PM ET

This webinar is organized by RFCUNY’s Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support (APPS) as part of the RFCUNY Wednesday Brown Bag Research Webinars, Academic Year 2023/2024.
GrantForward is a service that is available to all CUNY faculty and students, and it provides users with access to a rich collection of funding information, including but not limited to aggregation of opportunities like research grants, fellowships, awards, internships, etc., from multiple types of sponsors such as Federal, State, Foundation, University, Private Firms, International entities, etc. This webinar will cover the basics of using GrantForward as a researcher. General areas to be discussed include– how to create accounts, search for grants, view grant, and sponsor pages, use filters, manipulate results, create profiles, and grant recommendations.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are hosting a virtual workshop on June 12-14, 2023 to discuss the state of the art, current challenges, and opportunities for using AI for mathematical reasoning. Speakers will explore the use of AI for mathematical discovery as well as for automated theorem proving. The event will bring together academic, industry, and government stakeholders to discuss emerging research opportunities and ways to collaborate among interdisciplinary research communities.
Attendance is free and open to the public. More information, including registration and the agenda, can be found on the event webpage:
