Proposal Writing Institute
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.
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.
The institute was last held July 11-15, 2019, at Kentucky Wesleyan, Owensboro, KY.
