Proposal Writing for Undergraduate Researchers Workshop
The Office of Undergraduate Research has partnered with The Writing Center to offer an exciting new workshop for undergraduate students. In this workshop, we will discuss the fundamentals of proposal writing, guiding students to formulate successful research projects and explain their research in a concise and compelling manner that is understandable to a general audience. Students will leave the workshop with (1) basic knowledge about research proposals and their structure, (2) tactics and tools to write successful research statements, and (3) a list of resources for assistance in the writing process.
Each workshop is limited to the first 30 applicants. For more information and for details on how to register please visit:
