Grant Writing Institute

The goal of the HES Faculty Grant Writing Institute (FGWI) is to cover grants from A-Z while working on a specific proposal. Ideally, faculty will work on a proposal to be submitted in the following 3-9 months during FGWI. HES FGWI will enable faculty to actively engage with various pieces and parts of an application for greater success for grants. Topics covered include: developing a proposal preparation timeline, assessing the sponsor and project fit, subcontractors vs. vendors vs. consultants, budgeting, MU internal processes, review criteria, abstracts and project summaries, broader impacts and public access policies, bio sketches, facilities statements, compliance to both federal and MU regulations, and more!

Program Summary: HES’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies will offer the Faculty Grant Writing Institute for summer 2019.

Applications are due by 5 pm, April 12, 2019.

The workshop dates are: July 22, 23, 25, 26, 8:30 am to 12 pm

Upon successful completion of the Institute, participants will receive $500 from the HES Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
