BI4015: GRANT PROPOSAL (2020-2021)

Last modified: 05 Aug 2020 12:45


Course Overview

Under the supervision of an academic, you develop a research
proposal suitable for submission to a funding organization.



The exercise of defining a researchable question, outlining
the methodology, and writing an argument as to
why the research should be funded provides excellent training for students
interested in pursuing a career in science. 



During regular meetings with the course coordinators you develop
your skills in record keeping, oral communication, and critical
appraisal. 



From feedback on your draft proposal you will gain
experience in refining a written argument and in presenting documents
professionally.
