Designed for the grant writer with limited experience, this workshop starts from the premise that nothing succeeds like a good idea. But there are other important ingredients of success, from assembling a winning team to achieving a strong match between the idea and a potential sponsor. In all, this workshop presents twelve key concepts related to success in grant writing. It stresses the importance of planning, and presents the sponsor as a potential ally, not an adversary. This in-person, 3.5-hour workshop is designed for junior faculty and postdocs in any discipline. Spaces are limited, so we encourage you to register soon to avoid disappointment. Please only register if you know you can attend and cancel your registration if you cannot make it. This allows for those on the waitlist to be given an opportunity to participate.
