PITCHING YOUR PROJECT: A WORKSHOP ON WRITING AN EFFECTIVE PROPOSAL
Writing a winning proposal can be a catch-22: Even though the best way to learn how to write a proposal is to be a reviewer, in order to review proposals, you must have already written a successful one. In this workshop, we’ll circumvent this paradox by using readers’ expectations of language, science, and argument to analyze the elements of effective proposals. How do proposals compare to other scientific documents? How do the various parts fit together? How can writers ensure that every page of the proposal develops and supports their overall argument? Presented by Judy Swan, Ph.D (and former NSF Fellow), Associate Director for Writing in Science and Engineering, Princeton Writing Program. Ideal for students applying for an NSF, as well as Churchill, Hertz, Labouisse, Sachs, ReachOut, Dale, and Goldwater.
