  • This session will combine lecture format and engagement activities, and will be customized based on potential funding targets indicated by registrants. This full day session is designed to convey the fundamentals of proposal writing, with concepts backed up with concrete tips and operational strategies.
  • A combination of didactic presentation, “in-classroom flipped classroom”, and audience participation to engage participants will be used throughout the day.
  • Targeted learning outcomes include understanding of the preparation steps before writing, techniques for creating a strong argument for the proposed project, techniques for communicating the approach clearly, and understanding how these techniques connect to the process by which a grant proposal is reviewed.
  • This will be a fairly broad-based training, with some emphasis on key agencies determined by registrant interest.
  • Integrated into the session will be ways to make the proposal process part of the everyday academic process, and to strategically plan for longer-term funding.

Registration is limited! Registration and requested information needs to be completed by November 13, 2019 for the seminar on November 21, 2019.

The Office of the Vice President for Research is covering the full costs for the seminar and refreshments; therefore, it is imperative that you do not register unless you will be in attendance for the full day
