New workshop series to aid ‘Successful Grant Seeking’


Clemson University researchers can enhance their competitiveness for grant funding through a new series of workshops organized by the Office of Research Development.

The “Successful Grant Seeking” series offers four workshops that will equip researchers with critical skills needed to successfully compete for external grant funding.

“Crafting successful grant proposals is about more than just the science – it requires knowledge of the funding agency, how to write persuasive questions for investigation, and how to build teams that are poised to conduct the research. I encourage new and experienced investigators to attend these workshops,” said Shelia Cotten, associate vice president for research development. 

The first workshop on Sept. 16 will offer tips on navigating the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. The session will compare the structure and review process for each agency, with tips on crafting competitive proposals for both. Other workshops cover crafting a proposal overview, forming research teams, and writing to reviewers. Experienced Clemson faculty and staff will lead each session.

Workshops are open to all faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. Interested individuals can attend in person or virtually via Zoom. Each workshop will last about two hours. Register online here
