New professional development activity

“Write the grant you want: A practical pathway to success (Foundational and Advanced)” Offered by Hudson Institute at MMC

Attention Students and Supervisors

Grant writing is a key skill in a research career and is a great skill to develop for other careers as well.

Hudson Institute is offering a new Monash accredited professional development activity taking place in the Hudson building at MMC. This practically focussed unit will provide a new opportunity for PhD Students to develop their grant writing skills.

The unit is broken into two parts

MNHS: Write the grant you want: A practical pathway to success (Foundational) | A 2–hour Foundational Course that will introduce the basics of grant opportunities, typical considerations for different opportunities and application process and how to develop your CV to be best placed for applications.

MNHS: Write the grant you want: A practical pathway to success (Advanced) | An 8–hour Advanced Course which will directly follow the foundational course for a smaller group and will be supported by experienced and highly successful mentors who will guide participants through preparing an actual application, including how to identify the opportunity that best suits, how to prepare and how to gain and  respond to peer feedback.

Students may either

Complete the Foundational workshops in the same semester (enrol for both workshops separately);


Complete the Foundational workshop first, and then enrol for the Advanced workshop in a different semester
