There’s Still Time to Register for National Science Foundation Grant Workshop
Registration is open until Feb. 15 for the workshop “Write Winning Grant Proposals: National Science Foundation (NSF) Focus,” offered by the Office of Research. This two-day workshop will take place virtually on March 11 and 12, 8:30 to noon each day. Note that both parts are critical for maximal understanding and future usage of the directed writing approach addressed in the workshop.
This opportunity will comprehensively address both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to writing competitive grant proposals to NSF. In this two-day program, Lauren Broyles from the Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops will emphasize proposal idea development, identification of the appropriate program office, how to write for reviewers, and a detailed breakdown of proposal components. The content includes material for applications to NSF, although much of the workshop is applicable to other funding agencies. This workshop is appropriate for faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications, either through training, mentoring, or personal experience. All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a hardcopy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.
This workshop is open to Syracuse University faculty and staff and our colleagues at SUNY-ESF and SUNY Upstate. The Graduate School sponsored fees for the first 100 eligible Ph.D. students, all slots of which are now full.
- Syracuse University Faculty and Staff: $100
- SUNY ESF and SUNY Upstate Registrants: $150
