The School of Graduate Studies, Research and Extension to host capacity building workshop on research grant proposal development

By Salome Asena
The School of Graduate Studies, Research and Extension and the International Center for Evaluation Development (ICED) has organized for a 3-day in person Grant Writing Workshop that will be held on Tuesday November 2, 2021 to Thursday 4, 2021 at the Chandaria School of Business.

The workshop will include researchers who have won the ALL-IN grant, thus the workshop is an opportunity to interact with other like-minded peers on how to write successful grants that help in closing the gap between evidence and policy by focusing on a locally determined research agenda and utilizing the local knowledge and connections.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for applicants to review their proposals with a cohort of their peers and an expert facilitator, led by expert presentations to set the groundwork for the collaborations. Each attendee will be put into a small group of approximately 5 applicants and 1 facilitator, depending on number of attendees and number of facilitators. Beginning with a peers and facilitators matching on Tuesday morning after the opening session, researchers can develop a rapport within their assigned group that will be the foundation for subsequent workshop activities.

Each group member will be responsible for reviewing one peer’s ALL-IN proposal and will initiate the conversation about their assigned proposal in the context of the session. A facilitator will moderate the subsequent discussions of the entire cohort and provide expert perspectives throughout. This will help both strengthen the proposals, but also to build the broader capacity in proposal development through hands-on workshopping of their respective work.
