Major Proposal Blunders and How to Avoid Them

January 24 | 12:30-1:30 p.m. | Library 101

The ability to attract extramural funding is essential to the efforts of most faculty to build and maintain an internationally recognized research program. However, winning grant support has never been more challenging. Fortunately, proposal-writing is a skill that can be developed and refined. This workshop will help USU researchers hone their grant-writing skills by learning how to avoid common (and painful) proposal blunders from a panel of highly successful and experienced grant writers and reviewers.



The Office of Research and Graduate Studies strives to provide the support faculty need to excel across their research and teaching responsibilities. We believe that regardless of the time you’ve spent in academia, there are still opportunities to learn and bolster your skills. One such opportunity to retool is our Training for Research Faculty (TRF) series.

TRF workshops highlight common experiences and challenges faculty face regardless of discipline. From tips and resources to improve your relationship with your graduate students, to addressing policy regarding the tenure and sabbatical process, TRF provides information and tools for faculty to thrive in their appointments.
