Open to all faculty interested in honing their grantsmanship using a hands-on approach. Limited to 10 participants.
This small group workshop focuses on crafting and refining the Specific Aims or equivalent objectives/executive summary page through a combination of instructor feedback and intensive peer review. You will revise and receive feedback on your drafts 3 times over the course of the workshop. If you have a developed project idea and are planning to apply for funding within the next six months, you are encouraged to register for this workshop series.
Since this is a peer review workshop, participants must attend all four sessions, and must submit an initial draft of their aims for a specific funding opportunity by February 10th.
If you are interested but cannot attend on these dates and times, please let us know what days of the week/ time of day/ time of year would be better. Your feedback will help us schedule the next workshop.
