Last week for applications to participate in
UF’s Research Administration & Financials Training (RAFT) Level One Cohort

Applications are still being accepted for the Fall RAFT Level One Cohort! If you are interested to apply, the deadline for submissions is August 18th.

Designed for research administrators with one year or less of grants management experience, the Research Administration and Financials Training (RAFT) Level One Cohort is a twelve-session classroom series that provides a thorough introduction to all aspects of sponsored programs management at UF. In addition, the RAFT Level One Cohort is designed to foster peer relationships within the grants community. Each cohort is limited to a small number of participants to ensure networking and relationship building.  Participants who successfully complete the series will be awarded a certificate of completion.

The cohort will meet once a week starting in September and continuing through early December. To participate, you must be able to attend all program sessions and have the appropriate support of your supervisor.
