Workshop Description: This workshop is designed for the doctoral student who plans to apply for external funding in the Spring or Fall 2010 semesters to support dissertation work (research and/or writing) during the 2010-2011 or 2011-2012 academic years. The workshop will take the student through the mechanics of writing a strong proposal for external funding.

Participants should be prepared to draft a funding proposal based on their proposed dissertation research.
