Grant Writing Academy

The Grant Writing Academy (GWA), Faculty Supporting Faculty to Strengthen Grant Proposals and Increase their Likelihood of Funding, is open to all University faculty members from the Health Sciences and Main Campus. The GWA is an intensive, 2½ day program which applies proven strategies and techniques to:

  • develop successful proposals for a variety of funding agencies
  • write clear and concise aims that are specific, measurable and realistic
  • communicate research priorities to enhance significance and impact
  • build strategies for career development and research plan sections
  • interpret program announcements and understand review criteria

The GWA offers a valuable and unique opportunity to focus on one's writing, to receive educated and
constructive critique, to rewrite and recraft, and to repeat the evaluation and editing process toward a final draft.


Specific GWA features and benefits include:

  • individual mentoring sessions with an experienced and diverse team of senior faculty members, key subject matter experts, and funding agency representatives (as available)
  • practical writing skills, tools and resources; group training activities; specialized interactive presentations; and online instructional exercises
  • networking and collaboration with peers across the University

The GWA provides a high faculty-to-participant ratio to facilitate the development of productive and independent
research scientists. For complete information and to register for upcoming sessions, please contact the Office of Research Education by phone (801-587-3958) or by e-mail.

The Grant Writing Academy (GWA) is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Associate Vice President for Research Integrity.
