In an increasingly competitive funding environment, it is essential to make sure your proposal stands out from others under review. Telling a clear, compelling story is critical to your proposal’s success.
This workshop will cover effective proposal writing techniques from the big picture to the sentence level. Grant writing pitfalls to avoid also will be discussed.
Effective strategies for identifying funding opportunities for your project include more than just searching a database.
This workshop will introduce a range of approaches and tools that help make searching for funding more productive and efficient. It will include strategies to manage and optimize funding opportunity searches, and an overview of tools provided on the Research Office web site and on other web sites.
