US nursing academic talks on grant writing

john hopkins profEmeritus Professor Martha Hill, former Dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, will present a half-day workshop at Flinders, The streets smarts of grant writing.

Professor Hill served as Dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing from 2001 until early 2014. As an educator, she is known for her mentorship of students and junior faculty members; as a researcher, for her investigations in preventing and treating hypertension and its complications, particularly among young, urban African-American men.

The presentation will include:

  • The ‘practice politics’ of grant writing and funding
  • What does a ‘fundable team’ and project look like?
  • What makes a project a ‘priority’ for funding?
  • What funding should you ask for (and NOT ask for)
  • Seeing your proposal through a reviewer’s eyes.
  • How does methodology influence funding? Does it?
  • How important is ‘track record’ and how best to present this

And lastly

  • Funders’ expectations, which will be co-presented with Professor Robyn Clark.

The workshop on 9 May will run from 10am – 12pm in the Sturt South Building, Room S306.
