Projects and Reports

Smith and Ward - Abu DhabiWith assistance from former program director Jo Ann Smith (left) and several other partners, MRA alumna Winona Ward (right) crafted and submitted a proposal to The Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to create and staff an entire research office for the organization.

The Petroleum Institute accepted Ward's proposal and she is now leading a significant international partnership, for which she received the Society of Research Administrators International's top award for international collaboration.

Ward's proposal also fulfilled a course requirement in the M.R.A. program, PAD 5850 - Contracts and Grant Management.
