Announcement of DPS Workshop on Proposal Writing – Friday Oct. 26th

September 1, 2018

The success of scientists depends upon their ability to obtain funding. Using Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) from NASA as a primary example, this workshop will focus on teaching the audience key points to writing a successful proposal.

Topics to be covered include:

  • 8:00-8:15- General introduction and welcome
  • 8:15-9:15- Proposal lifecycle, guidance on writing for specific audiences, compliance checklist
  • 9:15-9:30: Break
  • 9:30-10:30- Evaluation criteria, the review process, programmatic balance, debriefs and appeals, and making changes to address review concerns
  • 10:30-11:00- General wrap up and group Q&A
  • 11:00-11:30- One-on-One Q&A as needed.

Proposal Writing Workshops help early career scientists, as well as those looking to improve their previous proposal performance. As a result of this session, participants will be able to understand the proposal writing, reviewing, and selection process for federally funded proposals, as well as help those who have previously submitted proposals improve their performance. The workshop will be done in a format that allows for a great deal of audience participation.

The workshop will be Friday, October 26th from 8:00-11:30 AM in room 301B. Participants are encouraged to sign up at the link below by October 15th to ensure they receive all handouts and supplies, however, last minute additions will be welcomed so long as space remains in the room. Participants are encouraged to bring along previous proposal materials and reviews to go through within the group or for one-on-one Q&A during the workshop. Please contact Dr. Christina Richey (christina.r.richey at prior 9/18,  christina.r.richey at after 9/18) with any questions.
