Grant Writing for Graduate and Undergraduate Students

Grant Writing for Graduate and Undergraduate Students
The ASU Library and IHR invite undergraduate and graduate students to a grant writing workshop with professional writer Ursula Pike.

Are you an undergraduate or graduate student trying to get research funding in the humanities or social sciences? Do you struggle with the application process? Come explore the ins and outs of grant writing by learning how to produce a compelling application that will get your research funded.

A complimentary lunch will be provided.

Led by Ursula Pike, a professional writer with more than 10 years of grant writing experience, this two-hour workshop will provide hands-on instruction and practical tips on how to create a proposal, elevate language and formalize your writing and tone for a professional audience. Pike has raised $7 million in federal, state, and foundation funds for higher education programs. Attendees will get the chance to workshop a grant application together.

Students may register for in-person or remote attendance. Those who register for remote attendance will receive a Zoom link via email prior to the event date. In-person attendance is limited to 25 people.

This workshop is co-hosted by the ASU Library and the Institute for Humanities Research.
