Spring Proposal Bootcamp: Natural Sciences & Engineering (BIOS 279)
Not offered in 2020. Sorry!
Graduate students and postdocs develop proposals in the non-medical fields of science and engineering (e.g. for the National Science Foundation) focusing on required documents such as the 1-page Project Summary, Broader Impacts, Intellectual Merit, and Research Plan. Participants establish a writing practice and learn fundamental grant writing skills through guided exercises, including in-class review and focused faculty feedback.
Bootcamp starts April 3, 2019. Your participation in the Bootcamp will be confirmed via email.
The 2019 Spring Proposal Bootcamp starts the first week of Stanford’s Spring quarter (starting April 3 and ending June 5). The available weekly meeting time is Wednesdays 9-11 AM. Space is limited so please only sign up if you are committed to attend and participate fully in the entire multi-week course.
Comments from our participants:
“Having a schedule and breaking the grant writing down into clunks was a huge help”
“I gained a lot of confidence by sharing my work with my peers”
“The feedback from the peers, coaches and faculty review is extremely helpful”
“Specific feedback about my writing was INVALUABLE, even though they had such different opinions”
The Proposal Bootcamp was honored with an Innovations in Research Education Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
