Write Winning Grants Workshop

November 7, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

Presented by Dr. John Robertson of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops, LLC

About This Workshop

Purdue is pleased to again host this highly acclaimed grant writing program. Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.

The workshop provides intensive grant writing training interspersed with specific details by agency. Participants will also choose one of four workbooks which provide agency specific grant writing tips and suggestions. The choices include: National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, or “Any Other Agency”, which covers agencies other than those listed.

The cost of each book is $75, which will be covered by the Office of Commercialization and Research. Registration is required by Friday, October 13.
