During this interactive workshop, grant editor Crystal Herron provided advice on how to prepare and write a strong grant proposal. She shared common mistakes and offered suggestions and strategies for preparing a fundable proposal. Faculty participants also met with the director of the Office of Contracts and Grants (OCG), Don Campbell, and learned about the grant application process at USF and resources available to faculty. Faculty appreciated the specific feedback and tips from the editor and had time to apply the concepts during a working session.
