Grant proposal improvement workshop scheduled for summer
STANFORD -- The Sponsored Projects Office will host a daylong workshop on "How to Write a Good Grant Application" on Tuesday, Aug. 8, in Fairchild Auditorium.
Dr. Liane Reif-Lehrer, a former associate professor at Harvard Medical School and senior scientist at the Eye Research Institute of the Retina Foundation in Boston, will conduct the workshop.
Reif-Lehrer is a veteran proposal writer who has served on a National Institutes of Health Study Section, and is author of The Grant Application-Writer's Handbook and Writing a Successful Grant Application. She is currently president of Tech-Write Consultants/Erimon Associates in Boston.
The six-hour workshop is intended for faculty of all levels, postdoctoral and graduate students, and research administrators. Topics to be covered include: the elements of a good proposal; understanding the review process; planning and writing the proposal; creating and justifying a realistic budget; submitting and tracking the application; and interpreting the comments of reviewers.
Although the workshop will focus on the National Institutes of Health, the material is relevant to many other federal agencies and non-government sponsors.
Before June 28, registration fees are $50 for faculty and administrators and $35 for postdocs and graduate students. After June 28, registration will be $70 for all categories. Registration at the door will be on a space- available basis. Registration will begin at 8:15 a.m. and the workshop will start promptly at 9 a.m. There will be a lunch break from noon to 1:30 p.m. and the workshop will conclude at 4:30.
For registration forms, call Bonnie Hale of the Sponsored Projects Office at 723-4237, or send electronic mail to as.bth@forsythe.
