Before attending this workshop, you may want to attend Demystifying Grants.

This workshop will include discussion of how to frame your “pitch” to suit the funder and granting scheme;  how to identify and embed key words and concepts; and how to clearly express your aims, goals, and objectives, as well as your anticipated research outputs, impacts, and benefits.  

Join staff from the Graduate School,  an early career researcher, and a successful Professor to gain valuable tips and tricks that will strengthen your future competitive funding applications. Come along and learn from the experience of others who have strategically built their funding profiles to become successful research leaders.

Jenny holds a PhD from James Cook University in Rural Education, a Liberal Arts degree, and a diploma in Animal Health technology, so she is able to support emerging researchers in social, natural, and health sciences.
