This is a 5-6 hour HEAVILY INTERACTIVE workshop that focuses on the construction of a proposal in ways that are most responsive to the various review processes. Prior participation in the Introductory (Foundation of Good Grantsmanship) workshop IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to make this exercise most productive for the participant. Participants will leave the workshop with a completed draft of a specific aims page as well as an outline for the remainder of their proposal. The workshop will review issues of pre and post submission management (budgets etc.), as well as strategies for leveraging and gaining greater buy-in on the part of the institution and colleagues.
Based on institutional need, the first hour for Part 2 could be devoted to Department heads and other institution administrators to discuss institutional approaches that best serve a longer-term objective of increasing its grants activities and external funding support.
