Grant and proposal writing and editing help are now available for faculty. Brought to you by the University Writing Center (UWC), in conjunction with the Writing Program and a grant from the Vice President for Research, a graduate Writing Fellow is available to help you with the writing, editing, and style issues of grants and proposals. Individual consultations may be scheduled with UWVC Writing Fellow, Sheena Mugavin, or in the Writing Center.
The UWC Writing Fellow will also be available to conduct hour-long workshops on grant writing and topics of general writing interest on-site in the UWC or at other convenient locations. Other consultation times may be arranged by appointment.
There is no charge for this service. Help is on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please plan ahead, especially near common grant deadlines. We strongly encourage faculty who are English language learners to utilize this service for grammatical editing of grants and proposals.
Because the UWC Writing Fellow is available close by on campus, she can respond in a timely manner, help writers produce more in a shorter time frame, and become trained in the particular discourse practices of the academic community. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
Other writing and editing assistance is also available free of charge to students, staff, and faculty. Available Writing Courses through the Writing Program include WRTG 6000, Writing for Publication and WRTG 7060, Scientific Writing. These courses, taught during both fall and spring semesters, can be accessed from the U of U website (Catalog & Class Schedules).
