Full day proposal-writing workshop led by Suad Joseph, Distinguished Research Professor at UC Davis
RSVP REQUIRED: goo.gl/forms/9X3KcoDlizsrXA4z1
Writing proposals for funding for research or other projects has become increasingly essential for scholars, students, administrators, artists, and non-profits. The basic requirements of a research proposal are the same, with modest variations, across disciplines, fields, and foundations. This full-day workshop will address how to develop the key components of a research proposal regardless of the format or funding agency. How do you move from the “maximal” proposal to a “targeted” proposal? How do you research funding agencies? Revise and resubmit? Negotiate terms? The workshop will address these questions and more.
