Grant Writing Workshop

We are hosting a grant writing workshop for postdocs on Jul 24th!

  • Proposal writing is an essential skill for a postdoc, especially if you are planning to stay in academia.
  • Successful grant proposal can open many doors for you. Receiving a K99 award greatly increases your chance in securing a faculty position.
  • These programs are also highly competitive, with success rates around 20-30%.

We hope this workshop can provide you the tools to write a successful proposal. The speakers, David States, Carrie Partch and Jordan Ward, will discuss:

What types of grants are available to postdocs/ How to structure your paragraphs and sections/ How to convey your science/ How to apply for K99… and any topics you are interested in.
