Irvine – Writing Successful Grants @ Humanities Instructional Building (HIB) 135
Nov 13 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Writing and successfully obtaining grants is one of the most important skills in academia and beyond. It is also a tremendous endeavor for which any help is more than welcome. We are organizing a seminar “Writing Successful Grants” on November 13, as a follow-up to our successful panel featuring Postdocs and Academic Researchers back in the summer.

The seminar will be spearheaded by Dr. Melinda Gormley, a Research Development Officer at UCI, who has a decade of experience in research development working for UCI, the US government, and University of Notre Dame. Most importantly, many postdocs have great personal experiences working with Dr. Gormley as her advice, proposal review, and assistance has improved many fellowship and grant proposals.

Please RSVP here. This is an event and an important resource that you definitely don’t want to miss!
