Write Winning Grants Seminar General Information:

Sponsored by Washington State University's Office of Research and the University of Idaho's Office of Research and Economic Development, this full-day seminar on successful grant writing will address both conceptual and practical aspects. Rather than what is usually presented little more than how to fill out the forms and conform to what is covered in the instructions this grant-writing workshop emphasizes idea development, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that have kept the presenter, Peg AtKisson, Ph.D., funded continuously throughout her research career. This presentation is designed to be informative while at the same time, entertaining. An extensive handout that illustrates points made in the seminar will help maximize the value of this seminar. Plenty of time will be allowed for questions and discussion.

While the principals and fundamentals of good proposal writing emphasized throughout the program are applicable to the preparation of a grant application to any agency, in any discipline, NIH and NSF are used as prototypical examples. Dr. AtKisson also provides agency specific tips to increase chances of funding. This program will benefit anyone contemplating a competitive research application to federal and state agencies, as well as private foundations.

The Write Winning Grants Seminar is a pre-requisite for the follow-up
Mentored Proposal-Writing Workshop:
