ELI, Office of Research to offer free course to assist UT instructors with grant writing
The University of Tennessee’s Office of Research, in combination with the English Language Institute, is offering a grant writing course to provide additional composition support to faculty whose first language is not English.
Advanced English Prose for Grant Writing will be held August 31 through October 19 (Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m.) at the Walters Life Science Building (room 401).
This is a “hands-on” course.
It includes opportunities to compose and revise proposals. If you are interested in registering for this course, please register here by August 27.
In this course, you will look at several areas of the grant proposal where clarity of text plays an essential role.
In additional to looking at overall structure, you will study how language can be used most effectively to present clear and concise ideas.
You will learn drafting and editing skills to make their texts academically appropriate and, hopefully, more successful as a result.
If you need more information, please contact the English Language Institute at (865) 974-3404 or e-mail email@example.com.
