More Info


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. 

The next workshop will take place on the Evanston campus (exact location TBA) from 5:00-6:30 PM on all of the following dates: October 21, October 28, November 4, November 11, and November 25.

The workshop will focus primarily on those preparing an application for the upcoming NIH NRSA deadline, though other grant writers are welcome.

Registration is required and space is limited.  Please register at: and have your advisor send a very brief email of support to no later than October 18
