Wondering how to write a winning grant proposal? Thinking about securing funding for your own work or the research of your supervisor? Join Sarah Mark, SFU grants facilitator in the Faculty of Education, as she demystifies the grant application process.

  • When: Tuesday, August 11, 1:00-3:00 pm
  • Where:  Burnaby campus (Thesis Defense Room, Library 2020)
  • Registration: Register using MyInvolvement (Postdocs can register as Alumni)

Whether you are working on a proposal to secure your own funding, such as the Banting or SSHRC postdoctoral fellowships, or assisting your faculty supervisor in the writing of their Insight Grant, you can expect to gain general tips and advice on writing and submitting your grant application. A former program officer at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Sarah will share her insight on such topics as:

  • The adjudication process
  • Drafting your budget
  • Theoretical frameworks and methodologies
  • Literature Reviews
  • Persuasive writing
  • Framing your CV
  • How to impress a committee

This workshop is designed for postdoctoral fellows in the social sciences and humanities, although postdocs from other disciplines may also value from the general tips and guidelines on writing. 

All participants should bring with them at least one page of original writing for the peer review portion of the workshop.
