Research Forum’s Focus on Grant Writing

We will host seminars throughout the year to help you hone your skills in grant writing. A calendar of speakers will be posted on the homepage. Please RSVP online to let us know you’re coming, your area of research and any specific questions you would like addressed.

Tuesday, November 14

  • Proving the Need and Securing Credibility by Shirley Gray
    • Grant reviewers want to know what difference your proposed research or program will make, and they want to be confident that you are capable of implementing your idea. Learn  how to communicate the importance of your work as you develop your introduction, background, or preliminary data sections of your proposal. We’ll also look at how to craft your message and prepare the required documentation to establish the necessary credibility.
    • Seminar will be held Tuesday, November 14 from 3-4:30 p.m., Lyceum 3rd Floor Room 308. If the number of registrants exceeds the room capacity, we will notify registrants of the new location by e-mail.
    • Please RSVP online.
