Creating a Compelling Case for Your Grant

April 10
1:00pm-3:00 pm

Faculty Expert: Ken Ortega, PhD, Associate Dean for Research, College of Engineering

Seminar Description:

Oftentimes, PI’s write the introduction or overview of their grant as an after-thought right before they submit. However, peer reviewers usually read this section first and may make a judgment on the entirety of the submission before they read it. Join us for the Compelling Case seminar to learn how to assess and write for your reviewers, and structure your grant overview to hook them at the get-go. Also, you’ll hear from a seasoned PI on how they have made their research compelling for sponsors.

The Office of Research Development & Education (ORDE) is happy to announce this upcoming faculty seminar, registration is on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to register soon! We provide coffee and snacks at the seminar, as well as related books and resources.
