Part 1

  • the funding environment
  • types of grants available for your discipline
  • what you need to take into account when choosing a funder

Part 2

  • the basic anatomy of a grant application
  • the research funding application and assessment process
  • what support is available to you within the University

The workshop is aimed at those new to applying for research funding and who plan to submit a proposal during the next year or so. Please be aware that there will be some offline pre-sessional materials made available at least one week before Part 1 and two weeks before Part 2, the material will aid discussions in the respective sessions. sessions.
