The Office of Graduate Studies is offering a focused grant writing seminar for graduate students and postdocs presented by Dr. John Robertson, a managing member of Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops, who has received competitive extramural funding from both NIH and non-federal sources.

The seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects important to the proposal writing process, emphasizing:
• Idea development
• Identification of appropriate granting agencies
• How to write for reviewers
• Tips and strategies of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers

Each participant will receive a workbook to use during the workshop. Four versions of the seminar workbook are available, depending on the sources from which you plan to seek funding: the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and a general version geared towards smaller funding agencies and foundations. Each participant may select only one workbook. Please indicate your preference on the registration form.

Registration is limited to the first 125 participants. Register at
