WORKSHOP FOR STUDENTS: “Essential Skills for Writing Fundable Proposals”

On Monday, 21st November, 2016, Fulbright Senior Specialist and Associate Professor Carla Guerrón Montero from the University of Delaware will carry out a workshop, entitled “Essential Skills for Writing Fundable Proposals”. The workshop will be carried out from 1 pm to 2:30 pm in the room P3 at the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology (Zavetiška 5, Ljubljana). In this workshop, students will learn the basic structures of successful grant proposals. Students will learn a useful template for proposal writing, will be immersed in hands-on activities, and will learn about the most common review process formats. Emphasis will be placed on the grant writing process in the United States; however, the template and techniques discussed will be translatable to the European context.
