Structure and Style: the narrative of your grant proposal

Course type: Two-day workshop
Duration: Two full-day workshops with assignments prior to and in between workshops

3rd / 4th year PhD students who wish to pursue a career in research. To participate in the training you must have previously written a research paper or book chapter. You must also have a rough idea about the research you would like to get funded. Ideally, you have participated in the workshops ‘Beginner’s guide to grant writing’ and ‘From chaos to focus’, although this is not a requirement.

Module information:

Writing a grant proposal is more than just committing your unique, worthwhile and feasible idea to paper by filling in a grant proposal form. To get your proposal funded you need to anticipate how it will be received by a mixed panel of educated but not expert reviewers. Your writing should clearly inform, convince and motivate this panel to vote for funding your proposal. In other words, your writing should take your proposal from telling to selling.

The heart of powerful writing is a compelling narrative. In this interactive training you will familiarize yourself with structure and style, the two pillars of a narrative, and will intensively practise them in your own writing, to open the door to funding.

Structure and Style is Part 3 of a four part series on grant writing for PhD students:

Date and time: May 8 and May 29 2018 – two full days. Schedule will be provided by the course instructor.
