Get the Grant: Free Workshop Presented by Successful U of A Grant Writers

12 September 2017 - The J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Innovation will host a free workshop for the University of Arkansas community dedicated to the art of nationally competitive grant writing.

The workshop, "Tips from Successful Grant Writers," will be from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, in Old Main room 523.

"Tips from Successful Grant Writers" will feature scholars from Fulbright College with extensive experience in garnering federal support for their research. The panel's conversation will be particularly relevant to science, engineering, agriculture and nursing as the panel will be talking about the process of writing for their readers—the reviewers.

"We are bringing together three fantastic researchers who are committed to interdisciplinary team-building in the natural sciences," said Jeannine Durdik, associate dean of Fulbright College. "They all have excellent insight on how to navigate the complex world of applying to federal agencies."

The workshop is designed to benefit faculty at every level — from recent graduates to advanced researchers.
