Florida SARE Offering Free Graduate Student Grant Writing Workshop
GAINESVILLE, Florida -- Florida SARE is offering a free Graduate Student Grant Writing Workshop on April 4 and April 11 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. The event will take place on the University Florida campus, McCarty Hall D, Room 1031 A/B or via Polycom.
This two-part, hands-on workshop is open to any graduate students interested in improving their grant proposal writing skills. Mickie Swisher of the Family, Youth, and Community Sciences department will discuss the keys to writing a successful grant proposal. Students will have the opportunity to work on their own proposals at the workshop as well. Each session of the workshop will cover different aspects of proposal writing. Everything from literature reviews to budgeting will be discussed, so students should plan to attend both sessions if possible.
Students from any department are encouraged to attend – Polycom will be available for those not located on University of Florida's main campus or from another university. This workshop is free to all graduate students. To register for this workshop please go to http://gradstudentgrantwriting.eventbrite.com/#.
