|GRADUATE AND POST-DOC WRITE WINNING GRANTS SEMINAR|
DATE: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014
| Presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson|
Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops, LLC
October 15, 2014 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Best Western, University Inn, Moscow, ID
This seminar teaches the participants how to write a competitive grant application, a skill that is seldom formally taught to graduate students and post-doctorial scholars. Content of the program is appropriate for senior graduate students, post-doctorial research fellows and non-tenure track faculty members who have not written a successful grant application. The program is a modification of the advanced seminar, Write Winning Grant Proposals. The difference is that basic details are emphasized to a greater extent in the Getting Started program and the pace is more deliberate. For example, more time is spent on topics like the review process: early-investigator programs, and how to take advantage of them: what to concentrate on early in one’s career that will help maximize competitiveness in the granting arena later (e.g., publication of results) along with longer periods of time devoted to questions and discussions. As would be building an academic career. A copy of The Grant Application Writers Workbook, which is written to complement and extend the seminar will be ordered after the seminar from the monies donated by the Graduate and Professional Student Association.
Registration: $ 25 per person
Price includes lunch and seminar handouts
