RIMC Workshop Series : “Research Grant Application Workshop”



It is not uncommon that junior academics or novice researchers often construe writing and applying for a research grant as a massive and difficult task.

Many inexperienced academics submit proposals that lack quality because they are done in haste, a last minute attempt and an effort done under pressure.

In many respect, writing and submitting a grant application is a straightforward process.

The problems are usually due to misconception and lack of familiarity with grant application process.

This workshop will provide essential insights on the processes of grant application with emphasis on writing a good proposal.

$1        Purpose and nature of a research grant
