Planning and Writing Successful Proposals: Starting Out

(tailored to graduate students)

Date: Fall 2021
Time: TBA
Place: TBA
Registration: TBA

The Planning and Writing Successful Proposals: Starting Out seminar is a full-day experience tailored to graduate students that combines lecture, “in-classroom flipped classroom,” participant-supplied content, and other practices to provide engagement throughout the day. 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 situations.

The goal of this seminar is to provide those with little to no proposal writing knowledge or experience with a framework of how to place a proposal in the context of a project. This seminar will help demystify the proposal process and emphasizes how the approaches taught can also be applied to planning and writing a thesis project or paper for publication.
