Research Development & Support Series: Writing the One Pager - The Shortest Path to Success (10/1)

Time: October 1, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Do you know what grantmakers look for when deciding what research to fund? The answers might not be what you think. Showing grantmakers that you know what they want is as important as showing them what you can do with their money.

To learn how to effectively communicate the impact and significance of your research through the written word and visuals, we will workshop two white papers, one for a technical audience and one for a non-specialized audience. You will leave with tools you can use to effectively draft white papers and proposal summaries for your own research.

Research Development & Support Series: AtKisson Group (ATG) NIH Grant Writing Seminar (10/11 & 10/12) (10/11)

Time: October 11, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: Virtual

Target Audience: All faculty, post-docs, graduate students and research administrators

Research Office: Research Development

This workshop will be broken up over two (2) half-day morning sessions (Monday October 11 and Tuesday October 12).  The workshop is based on a combined lecture, reading and discussion approach, focusing on the key organizational principles for writing competitive grant proposals. How does the planning process impact the final proposal? What key information must be on the first page? How do you organize the discussion of the approach so that your plan is crystal clear to your reviewer? Many of the answers to these questions are common across funders, and the program provides both conceptual approaches and concrete methods for constructing competitive proposals.

The approach is based on over 20 years of grant writing and training experience across multiple agencies and disciplines. The presenter, M. S. (Peg) AtKisson founded the proposal and research development office at Tufts University starting as a contract grant writer in 2001. In 8 years she and her team contributed to $140,000,000 in funded proposals from NSF, NIH, USDA, USAID, Keck Foundation, and others. After working as a trainer for a grant writing consulting firm, Dr. AtKisson founded AtKisson Training Group (ATG) to expand training beyond the proposal document and into the overall planning for funding and academic success. Dr. AtKisson is a highly acclaimed public speaker with a track record of helping faculty improve their competitiveness for funding.

For a $50 registration fee, participants receive the presentation handouts and the Handbook for Planning and Writing Successful Proposals. The Handbook is used during the day and serves as a resource for proposal writing.

How do you organize the discussion of the approach so that your plan is crystal clear to your reviewer? Many of the answers to these questions are common across funders, and the program provides both conceptual approaches and concrete methods for constructing competitive proposals. The day is facilitated by two presenters with extensive experience in successful grant applications to fund arts and humanities projects use and provide training in skills that can be used across funders.
