Research Grant Writing Workshop

When: Thursday, May 10th, 2018, 9am - noon MST

Where: AU Edmonton, Room 1222 and Adobe Connect

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.
