  • Pitching Your Project: A Two-Part Workshop on Effective Proposals

    Repeats every week until Fri Mar 09 2018.
    Fri, Mar 2, 2018, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

    Even experienced researches find funding proposals difficult to write. One challenge is that proposals present a Catch-22: Although reviewing proposals is the best way to learn to write them, only researchers who have successfully written them are invited to serve on review committees. In this workshop, we’ll circumvent the paradox by using readers’ expectations of language, science, and argument to analyze the elements of effective proposals. How do proposals compare to other scientific documents? How do the various parts fit together?
