4.             Grant Writing Crash Course

April 26-28, 2013
The Lodges at Deer Valley Resort
Park City, Utah

Open to all faculty members and postdoctoral scholars

Experienced University of Utah faculty will provide individualized instruction in the mechanics of effective grant proposal writing, how to sell your idea to a sponsoring agency, how to develop specific aims and justifications and the political and social aspects of “granstmanship.” Participants will work on their grant proposals at the GWCC, receiving real-time feedback to strengthen their proposals and enhance their likelihood of funding. A high faculty-to-trainee (PI) ratio is provided and attendance is highly limited. If you do not have seed or personal funding available for the registration fee, we encourage you to discuss other options with your department chair or research dean. Registration fees include two nights lodging at the Deer Valley Resort, use of recreational facilities and most meals. A spouse/partner and up to two children are welcome to accompany the participant (additional charge if more than two children attend). To register, or for more information, please contact Tony Onofrietti, director of research education at 801-585-3492.

The Grant Writing Crash Course is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and led by Dr. Gary C. Schoenwolf, distinguished professor of neurobiology and anatomy.
