The Office of Sponsored Projects is pleased to host an in-person seminar for faculty, professional research staff, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and research administrators. This is the only grant writing seminar at UT Austin that is endorsed by the Office of the Vice President for Research, Scholarship and Creative Endeavors.

Presenter: Dr. John D. Robertson is the Managing Member with Grant Writers’ Seminars & Workshops, an organization founded by academicians for academicians seeking research funding. He received his doctoral degree in 1999 from The University of Texas at Austin in Pharmacology and Toxicology. From 1999-2003 he served as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. He was subsequently hired in 2004 by the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, KS where he was a faculty member in the Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics, and was an associate member of the University of Kansas Cancer Center. In 2010, he was recruited to teach grantsmanship by Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops. Dr. Robertson has been the recipient of competitive extramural funding from the NIH and non-federal sources. He has authored 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and three book chapters. He has been a member of grant review panels, a reviewer for biomedical journals, and has served on editorial boards. In addition, he has routinely recognized for excellence in teaching.

Write Winning Grant Proposals

This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to proposal-writing success and is designed for faculty members and administrative staff who have had some exposure to writing grant applications, either through training/mentoring or personal experience.

Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers. Participants are taught to organize their presentations using a linear progression of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications.
