Course Description

Writing a grant proposal can be daunting and unnerving. In fact, most researchers never receive the funding they need. Writing a grant proposal is a time-consuming process that requires a planned and structured approach to convince the jury about your research study and to justify your funding request.

This video training program equips you with all the skills needed to develop a winning grant proposal to grab the attention of funding bodies, and also provides a list of local and international funding agencies. Learn about the different parts of a grant proposal, the main questions you should address, guidelines you should follow, and expert advice on how you can get the research funding you deserve, all delivered in bite-sized modules.
