This workshop series will provide an introduction into writing a scientific proposal. Ideally you will focus your proposal on a project that is similar to the work your present lab is conducting, or a topic you find interesting. For this exercise will be using the NSF proposal as a template (see: https:// drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/189a4zSxoEE-ddigR5kiCwKev6NoN43xs)

Instructor: Dr. Rich Slivicki

Goals: The goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a skillset to communicate and critically evaluate scientific proposals as presented in text.

It is important that you identify the limitations of your study and in particular ensure that the conclusions that you are making do not overstep the methodology that you are using. We will focus on how to identify limitations within the study design and how to appropriately predict results. We will end by giving final tips based on the applications you have sent in.
