Module information:

The last o f a four-part series on grant writing for PhD students.

Rubicon grant writing is a workshop that logically follows the other three grant writing classes:

The training targets PhD students who aim to submit a Rubicon grant proposal to NWO (or any other grant proposal that is similar to Rubicon and represents your first personal career grant as a PhD) and provides them with feedback on 4 important aspects of the grant proposal: the summary, the host section, the CV section, and the Knowledge Utilization paragraph. It furthermore informs participants about how the selection and shortlisting of candidates works, and provides other useful information and advice. There will also be plenty of time to ask questions about issues you have encountered while writing a first draft of your proposal.

Five days prior to the training you need to upload o ne PowerPoint slide that summarizes your most important aims for the Rubicon application. In addition, you need to upload the Summary of your proposal, your CV, Host Institute paragraph and Knowledge Utilization/Dissemination paragraph, all in the Rubicon format, as well as 3 possible titles for your proposal.
