Following last year’s successful IAP offering, WRAP is extending the workshop on Writing Successful Proposals to two days (5 hours in total). At the heart of this workshop is a conceptual framework for proposal writing, centered around the baseline logic of the proposal as a genre, and the associated rhetorical moves within proposal sections. As an extension to this framework, participants will be presented with a model to effectively develop methodology sections, project timelines and budgets. In the second session of the workshop, participants will work on applying the baseline logic model into their own project ideas, and learn how to integrate visuals and generate discourse for the different sections. Finally, we will discuss how to create a persuasive line of argument through the use of themes that the potential sponsors will feel compelled to consider for funding.

The workshop is targeted towards advanced undergraduate students engaged in original research, graduate students and faculty or staff in the process of submitting proposals for funding.

Space is limited to 30 participants.
