Target Audience: Graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows, and non-tenure-track faculty members.
The graduate student grant writing seminar is a modification of the faculty grant writing seminar and is tailored to the needs of graduate students and those who have little to no grant writing experience. Attendees will leave the seminar understanding the why as well as the how of grant writing. This seminar will help demystify the process and emphasize how the approaches taught can also be applied to planning and writing a thesis project or paper for publication.
Target Audience: Faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications.
The faculty grant writing 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 grant development situations. 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.
Target Audience: Faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and administrative staff in the arts and humanities disciplines who have had some exposure to writing grant applications.
The arts & humanities grant writing seminar is similar to the regular faculty grant writing seminar but with special emphasis on how to write successful proposals to the funders of creative activities.
Target Audience: Faculty members eager to learn how to write better proposals for external funding of their research. New faculty are especially encouraged but established faculty who may be less experienced in developing proposals for external funding consideration or simply want to improve their efforts are also welcome.
During the Proposal Writing Institute (PWI), participants will work on a specific proposal to an extramural funder that must be submitted as a result of the PWI activities. A comprehensive approach to the proposal development process will be achieved during the PWI through presentations, discussions, and small-group activities.
