Designed for beginning grantseekers, “START HERE: Proposal Planning & Writing” is a two-day interactive workshop that will help you begin preparing a grant application. First, you will learn why externally-sponsored grants are important at institutions that focus on teaching. You will explore ways in which your research and scholarly activity can benefit from grant funding and you will identify potential sponsors that are aligned with your goals. Finally, after a brief introduction to proposal components, you will draft key sections of your proposal, supported by small-group discussions and individualized feedback. Your proposal draft can be further refined during the summer or academic year, in collaboration with colleagues, the facilitator, the UWRF Director of Grants and Research, and others.
Lunch will be provided on both days. Space is limited to 10 participants. RSVP to Wendy Stocker at [email protected]
