Each part is a two-hour interactive workshop. Whether you plan to write a proposal for a federal agency, foundation, or an internal grant competition, this workshop series will help you get your ideas out of your head and on to paper with a clear and solid voice, written in a way that reviewers are expecting today. With this workshop, you will learn what today’s reviewers expect in a research proposal; learn helpful tips when writing with others; produce a solid proposal foundation for your research idea; and build collaborative relationships with other attendees to support one another along your grant writing path.
