February 16, 2021

The intent of the Proposal Development Workshop (PDW) series is to expose a general audience to proposal best practice at ASU so that we can increase overall familiarity with ASU process. Hopefully, we can also increase compliance/competitiveness of proposals.

PDW’s are structured such that they are easily accessible to a large swath of the ASU population. From faculty who need a refresher or are just starting out to students who are curious about the process, these workshops will leave you feeling empowered to write that proposal.

Research Development completed its fifth year of this workshop series in 2020. Each workshop features a specialist at the university, with years of relevant experience. The friendly presentations are usually under an hour long and suitable for listening to during your daily exercise routine.

Our opinion is that this year is, hands down, the best one yet. But, don’t take our word for it – check out the videos yourself.
