Grant Writing - (2 days series December 16th, 17th) Applying for research grants and scholarships


2020年12月16日 (水) 10:00 12:00




Summary and Objectives

These virtual workshops will provide practical insights and strategies to help researchers achieve this goal.

It is essential for researchers to learn how to prepare and submit attractive grant or scholarship applications to increase their chances of success.

Funding agencies are looking for a strong return on their investment when selecting studies to support. In other words, they are looking for research that is both beneficial to the field and/or society as well as achievable in the allotted time frame. Therefore, researchers need to prepare their applications to convince these agencies that their research meets these criteria.

These webinars contain numerous interactive elements and activities to stimulate engagement among the participants. A Participant Guide will be available for the attendees to download before the first webinar begins, and recordings of the webinars will be available for the attendees to review for 30 days after the last webinar has concluded.
