The Grant Writing Retreat is open to selected individuals to provide a dedicated space and resources for participants to write a scope of work and budget for a pre-identified and approved proposal idea. The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) will work with the participant to turn the resulting proposal into a full application for submission to an external funder. Participants may also be allowed to complete and submit a current proposal application during the retreat. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops but the Kossen Center's computer lab will also be available for those who choose not to.


Date and Time: Wednesday May 6, 2020; 8 am to 4:00 pm

The retreat will provide the following spaces, amenities, and resources:

  • Two “quiet” rooms (for writing only)
  • CTL computer lab for those without laptop
  • Active learning classroom used for multiple information and Q&A sessions provided by OSP Director; and collaborative discussions among participants
  • Catered lunch
  • All day assistance by OSP Director

Space for writing retreat is limited and you may register below or through the Office of Sponsored Project's website. Applicants will be required to provide a detail of their proposal idea; they will NOT be required to identify a potential funding agency or opportunity. OSP will work with the participant to find an appropriate funding opportunity for their idea. The progress and submission of that proposal will be tracked by OSP. The faculty and staff members’ chair/dean/director will be made aware of the individual’s participation and their commitment to the submission of the identified proposal.
