ELWS WORKSHOP REMINDER: Writing a Thesis or Grant Proposal

Graduate students write many proposals—federal grant proposals, travel grant proposals, thesis proposals—and every proposal has a potentially significant impact on a student’s ability to carry out specific research. This workshop provides an overview of proposal writing designed to get students thinking about the demands of, and the predictable variations in, this important genre of writing. We will examine the similarities and differences between thesis and grant proposals, consider the main questions that most proposals must answer, and see examples of answers to those questions in successful proposals. We will also consider common pitfalls in proposal writing, and strategies for getting started on writing a proposal.

Instructor: Dr. Jane Freeman

Place and Time: Tuesday, October 2, 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., Koffler House, 569 Spadina Avenue, Room 108
