The Graduate School offers a series of fellowship proposal writing workshops in alignment with specific deadlines and led by writing experts. The goal is to help students and postdoctoral fellows produce the strongest possible writing for proposals, understand what reviewers are looking for, edit writing to be clear, concise, interesting, and persuasive, and increase the likelihood of securing funding. Participants should be prepared to bring drafts of their grant proposals to each session for peer and instructor review. This is a writing workshop, and you will be expected to work on your material in these workshop sessions.
There will be a workshop on both the Evanston and Chicago campuses.
Evanston campus workshop: 3:30 – 5:00 on August 19, August 26, September 2, September 9 and September 16.
Chicago campus workshop: 5:00 – 6:30 on August 18, August 28, September 4, September 8, and September 15
Registration is required and space is limited. Please register at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TGZ6BHX and have your advisor send a very brief email of support to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 15, 2014.
At this time, proposals for both awards will be accepted for innovative contributions to the understanding, research and treatment of Parkinson’s Disease. Both initiatives are seeking proposals that impact patient care through translational clinical research studies. Prospective proposals will be ones which provide support for all work associated with Parkinson’s Disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Eligible investigators may apply to both competitions, but the proposals must be for different projects.
