John Robertson of Grant Writers Seminars and Workshops leads a previous “Write Winning Grant Proposals” seminar.

“Write Winning Grant Proposals,” a free grant writing seminar to help University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty prepare successful proposals, is March 17 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. in the Great Plains Room at the Nebraska East Union.

The daylong session requires advance online registration.

The Office of Research and Economic Development offers this annual grant writing seminar primarily for faculty. Staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are welcome to attend, but they will be added to a waiting list for any spots that may remain after faculty have had a chance to register. Continental breakfast and lunch are included.

The seminar covers both practical and conceptual aspects important to the proposal writing process and emphasizes idea development, identification of appropriate granting agencies, and tips and strategies for presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers. John Robertson, associate member of Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops LLC, will lead the session.

Four versions of the seminar workbook are available, depending on a participant’s likely funding source: the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and a general version geared toward smaller funding agencies and foundations. Each participant may select only one workbook by indicating that preference on the registration form.

Participants from UNMC, UNO and UNK also are welcome but will be charged $150 to cover workshop costs, and should bring payment the day of the seminar or have a department provide a cost object number to which the fee can be charged. For non-NU participants, the fee is $200, payable the day of the seminar.
