Research Grant Writing Workshop

The AU Research Centre recently hosted a research grant writing workshop. Thank you to those who attended this informative session.

The workshop slides are posted here to assist those interested in applying to external agencies for research funds.

Title: Wisdom of the Grant-Writing Masters

In this workshop, we’ll examine grant-writing strategies used by researchers who have long histories of success in research funding competitions. We’ll focus on types of advance preparation that are essential to preparing a strong grant proposal. We’ll also look briefly at writing style for a proposal and at the key step of getting useful feedback on your draft proposal.

A little about our workshop leader...

Cathy McPhalen has been mentoring researchers on grant applications in the Faculty of Health Disciplines at AU since 2013, through the AU Research Centre since 2014, and with the Grant Assist Program at the University of Alberta since 2010. Her goal in this work is to help AU researchers increase their success in provincial and national grant competition.
