Research Administration Training Series (RATS)

Grant Writing Academy Workshop
Registration for the October 26 – 28, 2018 Research Education Grant Writing Academy is now open!

The Grant Writing Academy is an intensive weekend-long program which applies proven strategies and techniques to develop successful proposals for a variety of funding agencies. This program offers a valuable and unique opportunity to focus on one’s writing, to receive educated and constructive critique, to rewrite and recraft, and to repeat the evaluation and editing process toward a final draft. The Grant Writing Academy provides a high faculty-to-participant ratio to facilitate the development of productive and independent research scientists. Future program dates include October 26-28, 2018, May 17-19, 2019 and October 25-27, 2019.

Given the increasingly competitive environment for federal funding, it is essential that the University provide clear guidance and strong mentorship for our junior faculty members in refining their grant proposals and enhancing their likelihood of funding. 

Attendance is highly limited! Please review the attached flyer and contact Research Education at 801-587-3958 or Sam Ma with any questions.
