Writing Scholarships and Grant Proposals: Workshop for Early-Career Researchers

You will learn how to:

. Explain your research project in clear, convincing language
. Make your project interesting and persuasive,
. Write a strong personal statement and project aims,
. Talk about impact, significance and innovation,
. Draft a strong dissemination and communication strategy.

All examples in this workshop come from authentic funded grants. The examples provide a selection of best practices and ‘things not to do’ you can consult when you draft your own proposals.

Excellent science is not enough for writing a successful research application. To get funded, you also need excellent grantsmanship, or grant writing skills. Reviewers often say that many wonderful projects don’t get funded because the idea was not communicated convincingly or clearly enough. So how do you make sure the advantages of your work are understood and appreciated?

This workshop will train you in the rhetorical and communication skills specific to grant writing.

This course will be taught in English.

PhDs, Postdoctoral fellows and young researchers.

Selection on the 1st come 1st served basis.

Note: This is a highly participatory workshop. You will be expected to provide feedback on your peers’ projects and share your own samples. This is why the workshop is suitable for advanced PhDs and postdocs who are developing proposals and have some samples to share.
