Feedback from last year’s participants:

  • Great presentations! Lots of humor and clarity. The information is comprehensive and very helpful.
  • It is always important for faculty to both learn and refresh their knowledge about grants, as the information changes.
  • I've learned a lot about grant writing … the workshops kept me motivated to stay on top of grant writing this summer.
  • Because of these workshops, I feel motivated and more confident about seeking external grants.
  • The presentations were very thorough and concise. The information in presentations was very well prepared/organized, and delivery was also engaging and understandable.
