CGS-D Proposal: Crafting a Compelling Research Story

September 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This in-person workshop is designed for graduate students applying for the Canada Graduate Scholarship – Doctoral (CGS-D) from the national funding agencies: CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC. Drawing on evidence-based research about successful grant proposals, facilitators discuss particular elements of this written academic genre: audience, purpose, knowledge gap, competence claim, structure, style, and more. The workshop includes examples of successful UBC CGS-D research proposals.

Highlights of this in-person event include dedicated time to write in community, light refreshments (coffee, tea, snacks), and 30-minute writing consultations with a doctoral peer from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication. Registrants will receive a link to book their writing consultation on Friday, August 30 at 9am. The booking schedule will close at noon on Tuesday, September 3. Bookings will be on a first come, first served basis.
