Phase II Workshop (prerequisite: Phase I Seminar)
When: Jan. 12-13, 2023
Consultations: The workshop includes 4-6 months of ongoing virtual consultations
Tuition: $4,000/participant (tuition is split equally between the participant's college, department, and the OVPR; workshop is capped at 25 participants)
To attend: Faculty should contact their collegiate associate dean for research by Monday, Aug. 29 for approval to attend
Up to 25 faculty members may participate in this workshop. Some of the activities are group based; however, ample one-on-one time is included to ensure that the specific needs of each participant are addressed. The program has three objectives for each participant:
- To write and submit the best application of which s/he is capable
- To better understand the dynamics and psychology of the review process
- To develop an appreciation that constructive criticism from colleagues can make the difference between an application's success and failure
Faculty interested in attending the Phase II workshop must be nominated by their collegiate associate dean for research and submit an application. Participants will be selected based on a review of applications. Selected participants are required to attend the Write Winning Grant Proposals Phase I seminar and one additional on-site or virtual meeting in January 2023. Off-site consultations extend over the subsequent four-to-six months.
Off-site interactions with consultants are conducted by email, telephone, and/or virtually, as required, to ensure that the specific needs of each participant are addressed. The final draft is critiqued for grantsmanship by a GWSW consultant, after which it is reviewed for scientific and technical errors by members of a pre-submission review committee that is set up by the workshop participant. By the time it is submitted, a proposal has gone through three rounds of rigorous internal review, which is what helps to ensure maximal competitiveness of the resultant application. New, renewal and resubmitted applications are eligible.
If you are interested in attending the Phase II workshop, contact your collegiate associate dean for research no later than Monday, Aug. 29, 2022.
