Are grant proposal rejections getting you down? Faculty who come to these sessions have a proven track record for receiving awards, because they get important feedback on how their proposals will be reviewed by a general academic audience.

Internal Research Award Writing Workshop Details

The workshop consists of two sessions where faculty are provided examples and feedback on their proposals. Participants are encouraged to attend both Day 1 and Day 2 sessions of workshops.

  • Day 1 - A University Research and Sabbatical Leave Committee (URSLC) representative will go over the application requirements and strategies for writing successful proposals.
  • Day 2 - Bring your drafts! Peers provide valuable feedback for revising application narratives.
