Planning & Writing Strong Grant Proposals - A Workshop

Develop skills and energize your efforts to obtain grant funding in a day of interactive learning with Lynn Miner, the founder of Miner and Associates, a premier provider of professional grant services and consulting.

miner Following last spring’s successful Miner & Associates workshop for advanced grant writers, OSP is bringing Dr. Miner back to UNC in September to kick off a new year of professional development in grant writing and administration.

Miner & Associates has written or coached over one half billion in grants, trained over 10,000 grant seekers, and published several books as well as newsletters, and blogs about grant writing since 1992. Dr. Miner’s background as a faculty member and a graduate dean makes him particularly understanding of the issues faced by faculty members developing grant proposals and administering funded projects. He says, “Over the past 40 years, I’ve encountered nearly every grant situation you can think of and use that experience base to help you win grants.”

Some of the concepts covered in Dr. Miner’s workshop include:

Analyzing the request for proposals
Writing persuasively
Matching your needs to sponsor priorities
The importance of the first draft
Documenting the frequency/severity of your problem or need
Proposal document design strategies
Making pre-proposal contact with sponsors

This workshop is open to all faculty members and those staff members who are required to write grant proposals as part of their job responsibilities.  Because seating will be limited, pre-registration is required.

A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
