This seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to proposal-writing success. It is designed for faculty members and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications. Principles and fundamentals of good proposal writing are emphasized, along with ‘how-to’ practical tips and strategies. Topics covered include idea development, maximizing programmatic relevance to the targeted agency, selecting the correct grant mechanism in which to package and present the idea, use of the review process to inform the writing of the application, and how to write for reviewers. In addition, strategies for writing each part of the application are presented, along with examples that illustrate how each section should be crafted. This seminar teaches new investigators how to write a competitive grant application; the content of the program is appropriate for senior graduate students, post-doctoral research fellows, and nontenure-track faculty members who have not written a successful grant application.
