Tailored to Meet the Audience's Needs


This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the proposal-writing process. It is designed for faculty members and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications, either through training / mentoring or personal experience. Each presentation is tailored to meet the needs of the audience, i.e., to emphasize the funding agencies (federal, private, and/or industrial sources) that are of greatest interest to the attendees. Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant's case to reviewers. The version of the program that focuses on NIH emphasizes how to cope with the changes in how grant proposals to that agency are written and reviewed. Regardless of the agency, participants are taught to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. It is stressed that applicants are writing for two different audiences - the assigned reviewers, who have read the application in its entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little, or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review panel. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized. In addition to the focus on NIH, a full-day NSF version of the Write Winning Grants seminar is available; it takes Into account the changes at the Bio directorate (pre proposal and prescribed letter format) and a discussion of the new requirement for the Data Management Plan.

All participants receive an extensive Power-Point handout, as well as a copy of
The Grant Application Writers' Workbook
