Proposal Writing Workshops
The Mission Agency Proposal Development Workshop is a one-day session designed for faculty who expect to apply to Department of Defense and other mission agencies for research funding. Mission agencies are distinct from other agencies, like NSF and NIH, that support basic research and rely on peer review panels. They generally fund targeted research that supports the aims of the particular agency and do not employ a strict peer review process.
The NIH Proposal Development Workshop is a one-day session designed for faculty who expect to apply to NIH for research funding and for faculty who are revising unsuccessful proposals to NIH. Participants will have a proposed a plan of work to support one or more proposals to NIH. Limited seed funding will be available. RIT faculty and staff with NIH experience will help participants better understand the inner workings of the agency, and spend time discussing proposals.
The Grant Writers’ Boot Camp is a two-day intensive session focusing on persuasive writing and peer review. The program covers the elements of a proposal and is designed around a seed funding RFP. Faculty with experience at funding agencies will explain what makes a wining proposal and how peer review works.
When and where is it? The Grant Writers’ Boot Camp is scheduled for January 8 and 9, 2019 in 87-1600. Breakfast is available at 8:00 a.m. on both days and the program begins at 8:30.
