Strategies for developing grant applications
Co-hosted with the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender.

This event is designed to share knowledge gained through the grant application process, drawing on a range of experiences - from individuals who have never prepared an application before, to those who are familiar with the process but, as always, are honing that competitive edge.

Topics to be covered include: pitching your project and its significance; presenting track records, traps for new applicants; what professional grant application 'polishers' do; crafting a rejoinder; salvaging the time expended.

The event will have a panel format so that there is plenty of time for questions and discussion.

When: Tuesday 20th May

Where: Eclipse Room, Level 4, Union Building

Please rsvp to Renae Fernandez by 16th May.
