Join NSF BIO Directorate program director Dr. Leslie Rissler for a six-day hands-on grant writing workshop for scientists who want to learn strategies, styles, and structures to improve their grant proposals. The experience is geared toward early career proposal writers including faculty, postdocs, and senior graduate students and will include direct discussions and writing sessions based on participants’ own proposal ideas. The workshop will involve finding appropriate solicitations associated with those research ideas, writing a proposal that matches ideas to those solicitations, and having draft proposals reviewed in a panel format by colleagues. Limited enrollment (12) will enable close interaction. Past participant’s topics have spanned biology, ecology and evolutionary biology, physics, conservation, and more.

Workshop dates:  July 22 – 29, 2023
Enrollment limit:  12
Cost:  $550
Location:  Mountain Lake Biological Station, Pembroke, Virginia
