Time:12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Venue:N003

Proposal writing is an important yet challenging skill for an academic. Having a good idea is necessary but alone is insufficient to win a proposal. Instead, the style, the accessibility and organization are crucial. Having the experience of writing and evaluating a substantial number of large grant proposals and been involved in the Research Grants Council in various capacities in the past twenty years, the presenter will share with you how to write a winning proposal for UGC grants. In this workshop, the presenter will particularly focus on the following aspects:

  •         The grant review process
  •         Elements for a competitive proposal
  •         Common pitfalls in proposal writing
  •         Successful and unsuccessful cases in recent years

This activity is jointly organised by CoP on Using English for Academic Success and EDC.

Food and beverage will be provided from 12 noon. To support the University's campaign for Green Campus, please bring your own drinkware.
