Events for 2015-16

The Grant Writing Program addresses every stage of grant proposal writing and will help you with issues such as content and organization, interdisciplinary audiences, succinct but not simplistic writing and drafting and redrafting.

These topics are addressed in two kinds of sessions: information sessions with presentations and time for questions and working sessions focused on draft proposals and discussions of specific issues in proposal writing.
