Registration required.

Presented by Dr. John Robertson, this seminar is appropriate for faculty members, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. In this half-day presentation, Dr. Robertson addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the National Science Foundation (NSF) proposal-writing process.  Emphasis is given to the approach to writing the Project Description, including the Overview and Objectives, Intellectual Merit, Research Plan, and Broader Impacts sections, as well Biographical Sketches, Facilities, Equipment, and Other Resources, and Project Summary parts of the NSF grant proposal.  The tips and strategies presented are of proven value in presenting an applicant's case to reviewers. Participants are taught to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized.

All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a copy of “The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook” for the funding agency covered in the seminar.
