Each year, we offer grant writing workshops and seminars open to Tufts faculty, researchers, students, and staff. Some are targeted at specific populations (e.g., graduate students or postdoctoral fellows), while others are open to the entire Tufts community. The following describes our most frequently offered programs. For dates, times, locations, and other information for upcoming workshops and seminars, contact us.

Grantsmanship 101

An introduction to the art of writing a grant narrative, this workshop provides an overview of how to: 1) Match a funding agency’s mission to your research agenda; 2) Write strong and clear research aims; and 3) Put together a competitive grant package in the design of your research narrative
