EVPRP to host the “Write Winning Grants” Workshop


The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) will host the “Write Winning Grants” Workshop for Purdue faculty, presented by Dr. Lauren Broyles of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops, LLC. The Zoom sessions are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday November 2 and 3, 2020 – from 8:30AM to Noon each day. Unfortunately, students and postdocs cannot be accommodated for this event.

About the Workshop

Again this academic year, Purdue is pleased to present this highly acclaimed grant writing program. The virtual workshop will address both practical and conceptual aspects important to the proposal writing process. It is designed for faculty, research scientists, and administrators who have had some exposure to writing grant applications. Emphasis is given to such topics as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.

The workshop provides intensive grant writing training, interspersed with specific details by agency. Participants will choose one of four workbooks which provide agency-specific grant writing tips and suggestions. The choices include the following: National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, or “Any Other Agency” (which covers agencies other than those listed). The cost of each book is $75, which will be covered by the participant’s college.
