Join us for a four-hour grant writing workshop led by Karen Kelsky, nationally-known academic consultant and blogger. Dr. Kelsky will offer tangible strategies for grant-writing, including how to think like the selection committee, how to structure your grant proposal, and how to use her Foolproof Grant Template to create a “hero narrative” that demonstrates the originality and import of your research.
