How to Write Winning Grant Proposals

A two-part seminar for faculty presented by Lauren Broyles of Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops

Learn the practical, conceptual, and rhetorical aspects of writing competitive grant proposals in a two-part virtual seminar presented by Lauren Broyles, PhD, RN, of Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops. All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a copy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook


This two-part seminar will focus on writing for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), but presented content will be relevant for individuals applying to other funding entities. Regardless of the target agency, participants are taught to write effectively for both assigned and non-assigned reviewers, with special attention given to the “extra” things that can make a difference in the funding of a grant proposal. 


Who should attend?


This seminar is appropriate for junior through senior faculty members. Experienced faculty may use the seminar as an overall refresher, for new ideas on gaining a competitive edge, and/or for strategies in how to mentor others in proposal writing. Junior faculty may use the seminar as a primer in proposal writing that helps demystify the components of a proposal and the process of writing one strategically.
