What you'll learn:
- The art of grant writing, especially for federal mechanisms, often focuses on the procedural steps to take (e.g., investigate what other types of research in your area have been funded and by whom; review successful proposals from colleagues; reach out early to the program officer; establish a timeline; and daily writing practice)
- While important, the procedural knowledge does not address the relationship of you (the researcher) to your scholarship or your values in research
- Learn an alternative approach to thinking about grant writing (e.g., as a process of identifying and grounding in your own authentic relationship with your work, your values and your future vision)
- Writing research grants from a values-based perspective builds confidence and motivation for the writing process
Prince's research to develop, test and evaluate multi-level interventions for sexual and gender minority youth involved in public systems has been funded by NIH-NIMHD, ACF and internal mechanisms at CWRU. She is a queer femme researcher dedicated to advancing equity and justice for sexual and gender minority youth involved in public systems.
Carla Pfeffer, director of the consortium, invited Prince to the series after she was identified by multiple graduate students and faculty members as someone they wanted to learn more about.
This event is free and open to all.
