A Few Comments from Participants of Earlier Grant Writing Seminars/Workshops

 

bullet

“The presenters were excellent! The arrangement by FASEB was very impressive. This seminar/workshop should be given to Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows before they begin their careers. I benefited immensely. Thank you.”
 
bullet
“This is a very informative and useful workshop. I am extremely glad I attended it.”
 
bullet
“Most informative seminar! Tips and anecdotes were very helpful.”
 
bullet
“The information in the book works. I have three copies – one for home, one for the office and a spare. I use the book like a bible! I have applied for an R01.” [Update: Investigator’s R01 application was funded.] 
 
bullet
“Full of powerful information that is critical to professors, graduate students, and postdoctorates. Should be a permanent part of graduate curriculum. This is my first formal grant writing seminar ... I learned more in 1.5 days than I did in my semester long microbiology course that had us write a mock proposal. Thank you!”
 
bullet
“This seminar was very useful and exciting. I now have the tools to complete a successful proposal! Dr. Stephen Russell is an awesome instructor. Thank you!”
 
bullet
“This is an excellent workshop. Of all the grant writing workshops that I have attended within the past two years, this is the BEST!”
bullet
“Best workshop I ever attended!”
 
bullet
“I enjoyed every minute of the seminar. I look forward to another opportunity to attend this workshop.”
 
bullet
“I thought this was going to be the usual grant writing workshop, and I had planned to attend for a few hours. The first hour of this workshop convinced me that I must not miss a minute of the workshop. It is informative and I am convinced that going forward I am a better grant writer. I am looking forward to my next successful application. I will recommend this workshop to anyone interested in writing a successful application.”
