Grant Writing

The principal objective of the workshop is to strengthen the skills of researchers in writing proposals that are competitive and attractive to funding agencies.  Such support is critical for Caribbean researchers to enable them to achieve a higher success rate in securing research grants, especially from international sources.

The workshop covers the content and presentation of the science and other information required by funding agencies. Emphasis is given to specific sections of the grant proposal that are known to be particularly challenging such as statistical issues, budgets and the crafting of abstracts that are attention grabbing but factual.

It also addresses the ways in which proposals can be written so they are complete, clear and coherent. The importance of investigating and conforming to the requirements and policies of research funders when preparing grant proposals is also stressed.  Participants are also provided with details of the assessment process and criteria used by agencies such as the CHRC in judging grant applications.
