Creating a supportive environment to enable scientific discourse at APS and APS Partner meetings is the responsibility of all participants.
Persuading people to support your research is key to helping you stand out from the crowd and get the opportunities you need to move forward in your career. Making the best case you can for funding in a written proposal requires a variety of skills ranging from an ability to communicate your ideas and plans to accomplish the work clearly and convincingly, through a willingness to compromise to match available resources. This workshop will discuss common pitfalls to avoid in proposal writing and how to make your proposal stronger by taking advantage of your network to read and comment on your proposal before submission. We will discuss ways to look for weaknesses in your approach (like procrastination) and brainstorm ways to improve your proposal writing in general.
