Grant writing is both a skill and an art. It is far different than academic writing and that’s where many of us go wrong.

Successful grant writers adhere to a few simple principles and techniques that have enormous power to attract grant givers and compel them to fund projects. They are not hard to learn. Writing grants proposals without applying these techniques is a waste of time for you as well as your grant reviewers.

Are you applying for an internal or external grant now? Will you do so in the future? Have you ever had training in the skill of grant writing? Do you simply need a refresher? This 60-minute workshop is open to all faculty in any discipline, full time or adjunct, writing or anticipating writing any type of grant proposal. You will learn writing techniques that apply to the vast majority of grants and will give you a strong competitive edge.

--Workshop leader Dr. Mary Reichardt is internal grants coordinator and faculty writing consultant in the Center for Faculty Development. In her academic career she has written and received external grants such as a National Endowment for the Humanities grant and internal grants such as a University Scholars grant. She has helped numerous academics and business professionals with writing, publishing, and winning grants for nearly three decades.
