Grant Writing Workshop

The UD Research Office is hosting the biennial Grant Writing Workshop on January 30, 2019. The workshop will be delivered by Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops, and the primary workshop presenter will be Lauren Broyles, Ph.D. This workshop comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects important to the proposal-writing process. Emphasis is given to 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. Regardless of the agency, participants will learn to write with a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. Strategies designed to merit a fundable review score are emphasized. Postdocs and Ph.D. students are welcome to attend the workshop. Non-UD participants from DE-INBRE and DE ACCEL CTR sponsored institutions are welcome to attend.


The UD component of DRIVEN is being led by, from left to right: Steven Stanhope, principal investigator of Delaware INBRE and associate vice president for research; Julius Korley, principal investigator of UD’s component of DRIVEN and director of entrepreneurship and strategic partnerships for the College of Engineering and CEO of Affinity Therapeutics; and Michael Bowman, associate director of the Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships.
