Event description

Description

Most academic research is funded through grants and fellowships. Winning them, therefore, becomes a critical step in developing a career and building a research team. Funds are available, but the competition is high, and people charged with the task of handing out the money have a responsibility to ensure it will be well spent.
This popular one-day Workshop, using the tried-and-tested, analytical ThinkWrite approach, gives participants the opportunity to expand their ideas on available funding sources and investigates what funders are looking for from a sucessful, stand-out Grant Application.

Who should attend:
  • Anyone needing help to start writing their first Grant Application
  • Researchers with experience who would like a more focused, strategic approach to applying for funding.

Learning objectives:
  • Identify the wide range of grant-awarding options, choosing the ones that best fit your work
  • Explore the underlying practice and politics that drives funding
  • Examine a variety of forms, understanding the need that underpins each box
  • Draw up a list of the components of an academic USP (Unique Selling Point), identifying how to evidence each claim with an application
  • Consider features of persuasive language, exploring the power that individual words can have to excite or annoy
  • Experience being a member of a review panel, understanding the need for clarity within your ideas
