Dissertation Grant Proposal Workshops

June 6, 2012 (Wednesday): 10am – 2pm
August 7, 2012 (Tuesday): 10am – 2pm

Location: Wells Library 402 (West Tower, computer lab behind the elevators)

The GradGrants Center is excited to offer two (identical) summer workshops for students who are currently writing proposals for dissertation grant applications (external fellowships for dissertation research and/or completion), and our goal is to help graduate students submit winning proposals that will enable them to complete their research and degrees. A proposal development consultant from the GGC will present tools for evaluating proposal drafts and making revisions, and the group will use these tools to evaluate their own and each other’s proposals and give specific, constructive feedback. There will be time during the workshop for participants to work on their own drafts in response to the peer feedback they receive and additional opportunities for feedback from GGC consultants. Participants will be asked to bring copies of a current proposal draft and the fellowship announcement/guidelines, along with a positive attitude about giving and receiving feedback. Further instructions and locations will be distributed once the list of participants is finalized. We want every student to leave with real progress on his/her proposal and with a better understanding of how the proposal review process works. Students from all departments are welcome to participate.

This workshop will be held two times this summer (and again in the fall, for those of you who are out of town or aren’t quite at this stage yet). We want to make this resource accessible, so if you are interested in participating but cannot attend one of the dates/times above, please let us know—depending on the number of requests, we may be able to adjust the planned dates and times to accommodate various schedules. For the June 6 workshop, we will give preference to those applying for grants with summer deadlines (including Fulbright-Hays and NSF), though students with later deadlines are also welcome.

To participate in one of the summer workshops on dissertation grant proposals, please send an e-mail to gradgrnt@indiana.edu with the following information:
