Sponsored Programs: Jeremy Miner Workshop

Free Workshop with National Grantwriter Jeremy Miner

Looking to find some funding for your research?  Want to learn what it takes to put together a successful grant application? Want to sharpen your grantwriting skills?

ORSP (with support from the College of EMS) is pleased to offer a grantwriting workshop January 6 and 7.  Jeremy Miner, a nationally recognized grants consultant  and author of three books related to grant writing and grantseeking, will lead the two day session.  Miner, who serves as director of grants and contracts at UW-Eau Claire will discuss finding grant funding, grant writing skills (for both beginners and experienced veterans) and will lead firsthand mock reviews of grant proposals to see what reviewers really look for. 

By the end of day two attendees should be able to:
• Understand sponsors’ “value glasses”
• Match their needs to sponsors’ funding priorities
• Recognize the types of details that sponsors expect
• Avoid common grant proposal mistakes
• Analyze grant guidelines and identify sponsor hot buttons
• Write a compelling summary statement
• Understand the proposal review process
• Anticipate and pre-empt reviewer objections

This workshop is free for all faculty and staff and will include lunch, refreshments, comprehensive notes and one of Miner’s three books for you to keep.  Space is limited so please register early.  Questions?  Please call Will Hoyer at x7365 or email

Time: 9-4 with lunch from noon to 1 (Lunch is included on the first day.)
Location: Markee Pioneer Student Center Platteville Rooms

All attendees can choose from one of Miner’s three books
Proposal Planning & Writing (2013, 5th ed)
Models of Proposal Planning & Writing (2005)
Collaborative Grantseeking (2011)
