EDUCST 5765: Grant Writing
Dr. Laura Justice
Being able to write competitive grants to secure internal and external funding is a desired skill for many academics. However, writing grants is different than the other types of writing activities in which academics engage, such as writing research articles and reports. This seminar provides hands-on guidance to graduate students to support their ability to write competitive grants; we learn how to carefully study funding announcements, generate fundable ideas and submit competitive applications. In this seminar, we’ll also hear from academics who have written competitive applications and from development officers who strive to identify funding opportunities. In addition, we’ll also spend time considering such topics as (1) how does one engage in research activities supported by grants? (2) what is the difference between pre- and post-award support? and (3) what kinds of costs can I usually put on a grant?
