Writing Successful Grant Proposals

Effective grant proposal writing begins here. AAAS created this program to help participants win more grants by understanding the process, effectively communicating their goals and clearly defining how they plan to achieve them. Proposal writing can be difficult, but is vital within STEM fields.

Our AAAS experts know what it takes to win grants and have in-depth knowledge of common pitfalls and challenges. By taking these courses, participants can improve their chances and avoid rejection before a proposal is sent for review.
