  • Grant Writing Workshop for Faculty and Administrators

    Interested in applying for federal, state, or foundation grants but don’t know where to start? Have a great research or program idea and want to explore how to write a grant for external funding? Join us for a Grant Writing Workshop for faculty and administrators presented by the Office of Sponsored Programs on Tuesday, May 17,  from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in SE 115. Workshop topics include: how to find grant opportunities; tips for improving your chances for funding; elements of a strong proposal; developing a budget; grant policies and procedures at RWU and next steps after receiving an award notification. Participants will receive a binder that includes sample proposals, grant writing tips, resources for identifying grant opportunities, and RWU guidelines. This is also a helpful overview if you are planning to work on your project narrative at the upcoming Faculty and Staff Writers’ retreat. Still have questions? We are happy to schedule follow-up consultations on specific topics such as proposal development, budget preparation, or how to use search engines to find grant opportunities. To register for the workshop or for further information, contact Joyce Botelho at or via phone at ext. 3552.
