Writing Successful Grant Proposals

Writing successful grant proposals is a skill you can learn!

A successful grant proposal is more than an excellent scientific research idea. The idea needs to be conveyed in a clear and compelling manner with realistic objectives, state-of-the-art methodology and a well-structured work plan and budget. Also, you must present yourself as the best person to carry out the research idea.

This course teaches you how to optimally convey your research idea to funding agencies and reviewers, and to maximize your chances of success. The course will run for four weeks, and you will need to reserve 2-3 hours per week for it.

If you have not yet written a grant proposal or want to improve your proposal writing skills, then follow this course.

You will learn to:

  • choose the correct funding scheme,
  • make a realistic schedule for the proposal writing effort,
  • distil your research idea into a few sentences,
  • write the proposal text in a style that impresses reviewers,
  • make effective graphics,
  • present your research track record and CV in the best light,
  • structure a realistic work plan and budget,
  • and avoid common pitfalls.
