RF CUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: Seminar for CUNY Graduate Students Seeking Grants
November 2 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Overview of Webinar: This webinar will provide CUNY graduate students with information on funding opportunities that are available for them from Federal agencies and philanthropic nonprofit organizations. Students will be exposed to databases with information on funding opportunities where they can search for announcements in their specific area of research. The webinar will also address key questions that need to be answered in developing a competitive proposal. Strategies will be discussed on how and what should be included in a proposal to make it an effective and persuasive write-up for submission to external funding organizations. Tips and advice will be provided on how to maximize a student’s chance for receiving an award and avoiding a declination. Most funding organizations use a merit review process which plays an important role in deciding how awards are made. This process will be defined and discussed during the webinar presentation so that students are familiar with how their proposals will be evaluated after they are submitted to the external sponsor.
