Part 3b: Writing your grant like a pro - Structure and style of your grant narrative
|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. This training is a follow-up on the Rubicon grant writing training. 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 a unique, worthwhile and feasible idea to paper by filling in a grant proposal form. To get your proposal funded you need to convince and motivate a mixed panel of educated, but not per se expert reviewers, that your proposal is worthwhile funding. Your writing should not only be clear and powerful but also 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. You will intensively practice them in your own writing, creating the first step to funding.
Writing Your Grant Like A Pro is Part 3B of our four-part series on grant writing for PhD students:
