Graduate Student Scholars | Writing Fundable Project Descriptions

Thursday, September 26, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
E20 Machmer Hall | UMass Amherst

There is both an art and a science to crafting fundable project descriptions. In this session we will discuss common proposal sections such as the literature review, methodological approach, and research contributions. Joya Misra, Director of the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) and Professor of Sociology, and Heidi Bauer-Clapp, Associate Director of the Graduate School Office of Professional Development (OPD) will offer insight on what funders look for in these sections. Bring your lunch, dessert provided!

Co-sponsored by the OPD and ISSR. Pre-registration required.
