NOTE: The virtual seminar is provided in four, 2-hour sessions. Registrants are expected to attend all four sessions to successfully complete the seminar. 

The annual faculty proposal writing seminar is an intensive experience combining lecture, “in-classroom flipped classroom,” participant-supplied content, and other practices to provide engagement. This seminar emphasizes the why as well as the how of proposal writing. By understanding the reasoning and rationale behind specific suggestions, participants can take that learning and adapt it to many different research and proposal development situations.

The goal of this seminar is to provide those with some proposal writing experience with new approaches and ways to think about preparing a proposal. The approaches taught during the seminar will help demystify the proposal writing process but at the same time provide concrete tools to use in organizing the information and arguments necessary for the development of a compelling proposal.

This seminar is offered every Fall semester and is a prerequisite for application to the Office of Research seed grant program.
