Join us for this workshop on writing research proposals. Research proposals are a particularly persuasive form of technical writing and are used to move to the next step in a program or acquire funding for your work. The tips in the presentation will be most applicable to funding proposals (grants & fellowships) but can also apply to dissertation proposals.
