Dr. Ryan Urbano, the University Director for Research and Development, facilitated the Writeshop for the full-blown GAA-funded proposals on February 23 and 26, 2021.
The objective of this writeshop was to write a full-blown proposal from the capsule proposal submitted by the faculty researchers.
Dr. Jonathan Maglasang, University Director for Grants, mentioned that there were 136 shortlisted proposals from the different campuses of CTU. He also presented the timeline where the submission of full-blown proposals was set on March 2, 2021 and the submission of terminal report in January 2022.
Dr. Urbano encouraged the faculty researchers whose proposals would not receive funds from the General Appropriation Act (GAA) 2021 to resubmit their proposals for 2022 or apply external grants.
Dr. Adrian Ybanez, Vice President for Research and Development, let the faculty prepare their full-blown proposals as an output of the writeshop. He told the participants, “you are accountable to the funds you are given.”
Other presentations included the forms, budget, and work plan. Ethical considerations were also presented by Dr. Sheilalaine Romulo, University Director for the University Research Ethics Office (UREO).
Hence, getting a grant from CTU GAA funds needs accountability and commitment of the grantees. –ccmr/rmmm
