Securing funding for your research involves a big investment in time and energy. And with more people vying for smaller pots of money, it’s more important than ever that your funding application stands out – for all the right reasons!
This workshop is an opportunity for you to reflect on your attitude/approach to applying for funding and review the ground work that is necessary before you apply. You will cover the essentials of writing funding applications and be introduced to core techniques to make your writing more impactful and persuasive. Do you appreciate the value of telling your research story? And of being compelling? You will explore ideas around what makes a strong application – including the importance of considering who you are writing for.
There will also be an opportunity to reflect on your experiences of applying for funding as well as sharing the experiences of other academics. You will come away with some practical tips that can be easily applied and which will help to elevate your applications from ‘good’ to ‘great’!
