Deadline to Apply to Proposal Writing Institute 2018
All Day Event
Milledgeville, GA , 31061
July 12-16, 2018 – Georgia College, Milledgeville
Application Deadline: Tuesday, May 15, 2018
This Institute will bring together faculty and administrators interested in preparing proposals for submission to external funding agencies. The four-day institute will consist of one-on-one work with a mentor, writing, small group discussions, and critiquing of proposals. The institute has been developed to assist novice to experienced proposal writers in drafting complete proposals for submission. Prior to the institute participants will be able to access information that will help them begin to draft their proposal.
Applicants must submit a one to two paragraph outline of their proposal and the name of the intended funding agency and/or program in the on-line application. This will help us determine how we can best support their proposal efforts. If you have NOT identified a funding source and begun writing a draft proposal, you should NOT participate in this Institute as it is geared for writing and revising draft proposals. You will get the most out of the workshop if you are writing a draft even if you aren’t sure where you will submit it. (note: The Proposal Development Workshop (not currently being offered) is designed to assist individuals learn how to find a funding source.) The week before the Institute, accepted participants will be expected to submit a draft of their proposal, and a link to the specific program announcement/RFP. Participants are encouraged to have as much as possible completed in advance, which will increase the likelihood of departing the Institute with a nearly finished proposal. Previous participants were nearly unanimous in declaring that they would have benefited even more from the Institute if they had been further along before they arrived.
Time at the Institute will consist of periods of proposal preparation interspersed with one-on-one mentoring by experienced and successful proposal writers, members of grants review panels, former program officers, and/or Directors of Sponsored Programs Offices. Small group discussions and group critiquing sessions round out the Institute. Participants who come well prepared and who work hard should be able to leave the Institute with a completed (or nearly completed) proposal to the granting agency of their choice.
A $50.00 application fee is due at the time of application. Should you be accepted to attend the Institute, your application fee will be applied to your tuition fees. In the event that CUR does not accept your application, the $50.00 application fee will be refunded. Should you withdraw your application or elect not to participate in the Institute, the $50.00 application fee will be forfeited.
Application Deadline: May 15, 2018. Applications reviewed on a rolling basis; institute may reach capacity prior to application deadline.
