“WRITE WINNING GRANT PROPOSALS”® (all-day seminar/workshop) - April 26, 2014
(click link to sign-up for seminar; you must be registered for EB2014 meeting attendance.)
This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the proposal-writing process. It is designed for faculty members and advanced postdoctoral fellows who have had some exposure to writing grant applications, either through training/ mentoring or personal experience. The presentation is tailored to meet the needs of the audience, i.e., to emphasize the funding agencies (federal, private, and/or industrial sources) that are of greatest interest to the attendees. Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers. This seminar program presented at EB 2014 will focus on NIH and emphasize how to cope with the changes in how grant proposals to NIH are written and reviewed. Regardless of the agency, participants are taught to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. It is stressed that applicants are writing for two different audiences – the assigned reviewers, who have read the application in its entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little, or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review panel. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized.
[Advanced registration and pre-approval to participate in the seminar are required.]
