Grant Writing

grant writing

Most PIs would agree that grant writing is one of the main aspects of their job, and yet it is at times one of the most neglected. Left to the last minute, often grant applications lack the required structure and miss the mark, which forces repeating the cycle once again but with lower motivation. To break this pattern and improve on delivery, we have developed this structured and interactive course.
