Research Grant Writing Course
Full course description
Research is expensive. Finding appropriate funding sources and writing a convincing application is therefore a core comptenency of scientists. In this course, students will apply what they have learned during the Research Grant Writing Workshop (PSY4114) by going through a full grant proposal writing and review process. Students will work together (groups of 4-6 students) to write a research proposal on their selected topic, including an original research hypothesis, design, methods, motivation and valorization. Students are encouraged to think across boundaries of different scientific fields. A mentor (senior researcher) will guide students during this writing process. The students will write their proposal in 3 steps, and they will receive feedback from their mentor and peers along the way. The resulting grant proposals will be reviewed by two assessors and presented during a symposium by way of an oral presentation.
Students are able to:
- review literature;
- formulate a research hypothesis;
- design a innovative research study;
- write a competitive grant proposal;
- present and illustrate a grant proposal at a symposium.
This course is a continuation of the Research Grant Writing Workshop (PSY4112).
