This 4-week, noncredit professional development course offered by Rachel Dresbeck, Ph.D., will provide advanced training and extensive individual feedback to help you write better grant applications. The 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 4 one-on-one sessions with the instructor to revise and edit the applications that participants are working on.
Suitable for experienced faculty who are writing grants in the new NIH format and for those with less experience as well.
Prerequisites: OHSU faculty appointment or completion of Vollum Writing Class; imminent plans to write a grant and some preliminary data to write about.
Next Session: TBD
Individual meetings scheduled at mutually convenient times.
