Every scientific document is difficult to write, but one paper in particular is especially challenging. You stand at one end of a chasm. At the other end is groundbreaking research, a potential wealth of citations, and half a million dollars in funding. To bridge this gap? All you have is ten to twenty pages of writing.
Even the most adept scientific writer may struggle when faced with a grant application. While it shares similarities with a scientific paper, it is sufficiently different to intimidate any first-time writer. In this course, we will demystify the grant, bringing the participants to a level that not only allows them to cross that chasm, but to shine doing so. The grant class is offered at three levels:
1- Introduction to grant writing. This course is mostly lecture and small group discussion-based, and walks both novices and veterans through all the best practices that maximise your chances of getting the grant. See your grant from the review panel's point of view, and learn to give them exactly what they want- so you can get what you need.
2- Grant writing workshop. This course has a limited number of participants, and each one must come with a grant proposal to be worked on. Participants will learn through analysis of each other's titles, direct one-on-one feedback, and rewriting with the trainers.
3- Grant review. In this limited course, the participant has a full 3-hour dedicated timeslot to discuss any and all issues in the writing of their grant, from title to conclusion.
This book completes the trilogy on writing, presenting, and now funding research.
