Everyone is doing awesome!
The College might be interested in the Science editorial by Johan Rockström published on 22 January 2016. It pays tribute to the IGBP (International Geosphere Biosphere Program) achievements over the past 30 years... "... three decades of remarkable advancements in Earth system science. The International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), which ended in December 2015, can take considerable credit for coordinating and catalyzing ... fundamental research." It looks forward to the " Future Earth research program" which should run with this spirit in new directions.
Don’t forget, the CEOAS proposal website has been updated! http://ceoas.oregonstate.edu/facultystaff/proposal/
Newest features include:
Frequently Asked Questions- This document answers questions regarding the proposal process, entering proposals in Cayuse and things to keep in mind while budgeting.
Request Salary and Fringe Rates for Proposals- This form can be used to request salary information for yourself or other employees on your project. If the project dates are included, we will apply an escalation rate and provide salary and fringe rates for all project years.
Multi-Year Budget Templates-Two budget templates have been added that follow the format of NSF’s 1030 and provides enough detail for OSU’s review. The CEOAS proposal budget guidelines and a GRA calculator can both be found in this spreadsheet. This template is not limited to NSF proposals and is not mandatory; we will continue to review budgets in the format that works best for you.
Cayuse Step-by-Step Instructions- This document will walk you through each screen of Cayuse SP. Notes have been added throughout the document to assist with a quick proposal submission.
