Course description
After finishing a dissertation, experimental psychologists usually need to acquire their own grant money, either with official granting organizations such as NWO, or with third party (commercial) companies. Chances in application do not only depend on a good proposal and a long publication list, but also on a good preparation, which this workshop is intended to facilitate. In the lecture part of this workshop Sander Nieuwenhuis and Guido Band chart the most relevant grant programs and discuss the do’s and don’ts before, during and after writing the application. In the practical part, the writing skills and presentation skills required for a successful application are trained.

In preparation, and as partial fulfillment for credit, a 2-A4 proposal has to be written in the format of an NWO Rubicon, Veni, or commercial grant application. During the practical part, we discuss the potential for improvement of the applications and participants give a 5-minute oral presentation of their proposal.

The organizers are experienced both in writing and in reviewing grant applications for NWO. Target audience: 2nd to 4th year PhD students.

Location:
Hotel Zuiderduin, Egmond aan Zee (ROOM tba).
