BI4015: GRANT PROPOSAL (2021-2022)

Last modified: 31 May 2022 13:05


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.
