Grant Writing Workshop @ UMD: Writing a Personal Statement
Learn what funders are looking for!
Tuesday, February 11, 2020 · Noon - 1:30 PM
Off Campus : UMD College Park
The AGEP PROMISE Academy Alliance brings UMBC Postdocs an opportunity to engage with other postdocs and resources across the University System of Maryland: a Grant Writing Workshop focused on an oft-neglected but important part of a proposal, the personal statement!!
As a researcher, you have spent a lot of time talking and writing about your research, but perhaps less experience talking about yourself, your experiences, and your career goals. Personal statements are a required element of most grant applications. At this workshop, you’ll learn more about what is expected in the personal statement and how to craft one. Participants are encouraged to bring a draft of a personal statement to the workshop. Lunch will be provided.
This workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Linda Macri, Director of Academic and Professional Development in the Graduate School, University of Maryland College Park.
