ANOTHER SESSION OF....HOW TO....ESTIMATE TIME/EFFORT COMMITMENT FOR CURRENT & PENDING SUPPORT
 
   Ever wonder why you need to claim effort on sponsored programs, or why you have to report effort on a project you are not claiming salary on?

HOW TO....PUBLISH HIGH-QUALITY RESEARCH
 
   The probability of getting published rests on three kinds of quality: 1) the quality of the ideas at the heart of the manuscript: 2) the quality of the methods and empirical findings supporting those ideas: 3) and the quality of the initial submission and subsequent promotion. To help academics gain success, this workshop will offer a systematic approach to conducting and reporting high-quality research that maximizes chances of getting published in the top journals of the field, including a process model for publishing high-quality research with implications for graduate training.

Facilitator: Dr. Jeff Joireman, Associate Professor of Marketing at Washington State University and co-author of How to Publish High-Quality Research.

PULLMAN:GRADUATE GRANT WRITING WORKSHOP

REG. FEE: WSU $20.00, NON-WSU $25.00
 
   The purpose of the grant writing workshop is to serve as an introduction to participants to the process of competitive grant writing, to current trends in grantmaking, and to various skills and strategies that will enhance their grant writing success. The first session of this workshop will cover searching for and identifying funding opportunities, contacting sponsors and developing a fundable idea. We will also cover research compliance issues and the institutional processing of a proposal. In the second session, we will discuss the typical components and characteristics of a competitive proposal, and organizational strategies. We will provide examples and discuss issues that are relevant to the various groups of people who may attend. The grant writing workshop will also discuss budgeting issues. This introductory workshop is primarily designed for graduate students, but faculty, administrative professionals, staff, community members, and all those with limited grant writing experience are also welcome.
