Grant Writing 101 will start at the very beginning. We will cover more than writing well. This is an interactive workshop comprising activities including group discussion and individual reflection around key proposal components. By the end of the sessions, participants will be empowered to develop research grant applications with greater confidence.

Grant Writing 101 is suitable for researchers who are new to proposal writing as well as those who wish to improve upon their skills. These workshops will be of interest to both early career researchers and experienced researchers who would like to revisit and refresh how they approach their proposal development and also share their experience with workshop participants.

Grant Writing 101 covers the following topics:

  • The funding landscape
  • Funding rules and guidance
  • Developing ideas
  • Finding the right team
  • Planning the proposal
  • Grant writing tips
  • Integrating impact
  • Narrative CVs
  • Grant assessment
  • Thinking like a reviewer
  • Engaging with feedback
  • The PI response
  • The outcome

This is a SPARK programme – an engaging, short programme focused on developing a specific competency.

‘I think that this course will be very useful for someone who already has a project in mind and intends to apply for a grant.’ – Researcher, King’s College London
