“Write Winning Grant Proposals,” a free grant writing seminar to help UNL faculty prepare successful proposals, is 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 21 in the East Union.
The Office of Research and Economic Development offers this grant seminar primarily for faculty. However, other UNL staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are welcome to attend without charge as space allows. Continental breakfast and lunch are included.
Advance online registration is required.
The seminar covers both practical and conceptual aspects important to the proposal writing process and emphasizes idea development, identification of appropriate granting agencies, and tips and strategies for presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers. John Robertson, associate member of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops LLC, will lead the session.
Four versions of the seminar workbook are available, depending on the agency from which participants plan to seek funding: NIH, NSF, USDA and a general version geared toward smaller funding agencies and foundations. Each participant may select one workbook by indicating that preference on the registration form.
Participants from UNMC, UNO and UNK also are welcome but will be charged $150 to cover workshop costs and should bring payment the day of the seminar or have a department provide a cost object number to which the fee can be charged. For non-NU participants, the fee is $200, payable the day of the seminar.
