This fall the GradGrants Center (GGC) is pleased to announce its Fall 2015 workshop series and walk-in hours. Workshops are aimed at equipping students with the skills to find relevant funding sources and write successful research proposals to attain this funding. Next workshop:
The art of proposal writing (Thursday, October 22, 1-2pm in the SSRC (Woodburn 200)
Proposal writing, like all writing, is a craft. This workshop will introduce students to the specific mechanics and strategies necessary to write successful proposals, and more broadly, how to shape a research project into something funding agencies are interested in. We will talk about how to tailor your research for different grants and fellowships, and ways to frame your project. The workshop will also involve a short activity in which students will apply the presentations’ lessons to their own project.
