This introductory workshop covers basic principles of good grant writing, starting with the phrasing of a compelling research theme to the actual construction of the proposal itself. Major differences between traditional "academic prose" and persuasive grant writing are highlighted.

Special attention will be paid to the perspectives of grant reviewers and how to write in ways that will meet their expectations.
