Speaker: Alexander (Sasha) Mikheyev

Title: Writing grants for fun and profit

Abstract: A strong record of obtaining funding is cornerstone of a competitive academic record. While you can view this fact as just one more thing to stress you out, writing grants can be a useful, and even fun exercise in its own right. While writing a grant, you are forced to focusing your research question and methods, while getting free peer feedback before you become overly invested into a research direction that you will then struggle to publish. In this workshop, I will present my own approach to writing grants, discuss what reviewers are looking for, and give you a 'foolproof' template to structure your proposal, regardless of discipline and type of grant. Luckily for you, grant writing is the most formulaic kind of academic writing, and by understanding the formula you can systematically optimize it and greatly increase your chances of success.
