Grants for Graduate Students, Part II: Grant Writing

Workshop--SPACE AVAILABLE

Thursday Oct 31, 2013 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM | GEB 4.214

Getting grants doesn’t just help you pay for your graduate education. Having a CV with a strong history of grant support helps you get bigger and better grants, and, eventually, will help you land jobs both in an outside of academia. This workshop is designed to help you with some of the major hurdles grad students face when applying for grants.

In Part II of this three-part series, we will cover: 

  • What information goes into a grant proposal?
  • What are the most common grant writing pitfalls?
  • How can you make your proposal stand out?

Part I of this series introduces techniques for identifying grant opportunities, and Part III addresses grant budgets. 

Space is limited, please RSVP to Melanie Morgan (mmorgan@austin.utexas.edu) no later than Friday, October 25th
