Are you an OHSU faculty member who is planning to apply for a grant this fall? This four-week professional development course, offered by Rachel Dresbeck, Ph.D., will provide advanced training and extensive individual feedback to help you write better grant applications. This writing-intensive course will use examples of successful applications and contributions from class participants to improve grant-writing skills. Topics will include strategic placement of information, improving sentence structure, and revising for clarity and readability. Other topics to be covered will depend on the wishes of class participants but may include identifying and solving writing problems, reviewing grammar, or avoiding writer’s block. Class sessions are complemented by four one-on-one meetings with the instructor to revise and edit the applications that participants are working on.
Prerequisites: OHSU faculty appointment or completion of the Vollum Writing Class; and imminent plans to write a grant and some preliminary data to write about.
Summer 2014 Schedule: Tuesdays, September 2 – 23, 2014 from 4 to 6 p.m in Mac Hall 2136.
