Upcoming Opportunities:

Grant Writing Workshop – Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 10am – 2pm.  The grants office will host a writing workshop focusing on the following topics:  how grant-writing is different, the importance of an abstract/elevator pitch, how the grants office can help.  Group work, sharing and receiving feedback, and time to write will be key ingredients of the session.  More details to follow in July’s GO News.
