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. Ideally, you have participated in the workshops ‘Beginner’s guide to grant writing’ and ‘From chaos to focus’, although this is not a requirement.
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 per se expert reviewers. Your writing should clearly inform, convince and motivate this panel to judge your proposal to be worthwhile funding. 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 the elements of structure and style, the two pillars of a narrative, and will intensively practice them in your own writing, creating a first step to funding.
Structure and Style is Part 3 of a four part series on grant writing for PhD students:
