She specializes in proposal and research development, technical writing and editing, and grantsmanship training.

Many funding agencies want to know how the research they support will impact society, and how PIs plan to evaluate the outcomes of their projects. Participants will learn how to navigate the outreach and evaluation criterion for grant proposals, to plan activities that increase the influence of their research, and to engage programs already occurring at UTSA that impact the broader public.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants per session. Advanced registration is required. For more information, please contact Dr. Ana Wandless, Assistant Director for Research Support, at or (210) 458-8175.
