More Info


The workshop will focus primarily on those preparing an application for the fall NSF Graduate Research Fellowship deadline, though other grant writers are welcome. 


The Graduate School offers a series of grant and fellowship proposal writing workshops in alignment with specific deadlines and led by writing experts. The goal is to help students and postdoctoral fellows produce the strongest possible writing for proposals, understand what reviewers are looking for, edit writing to be clear, concise, interesting, and persuasive and increase the likelihood of securing funding. Participants should be prepared to bring drafts of their grant proposals to each session for peer and instructor review. This is a writing workshop, and you will be expected to work on your material in these workshop sessions.
