Please join the Office of Research Development for the annual Grant Proposal Development Workshop, an intensive and comprehensive hands-on program for faculty who are interested in developing or revising a proposal. The series is organized with time in between each session for participants to complete components of a proposal step-by-step with feedback along the way. Participants should finish the program with a fully-developed, competitive proposal.

The 2024 series is divided into two parts.

  • PART 1: Open to all faculty and postdocs, but material is geared towards early career faculty and postdocs with little grant-writing experience.
  • PART 2: Open by application only for a cohort of 10-15 faculty at any career stage and any level of grant-writing experience who are planning to submit a proposal and would like personalized support, review, and feedback.
