Interactive Grant Writing Workshop with the National Geographic Society. Kuala Lumpur, July 26 & 27

The National Geographic Society (NGS) will be hosting an in-person and interactive workshop to assist potential applicants in developing project ideas and application materials while fostering collaboration and innovation. This 1.5 day workshop will be held on July 26 and 27, 2019, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The workshop is free for participants and NGS will cover meals on workshop days for workshop attendees (breakfast, lunch and snacks). Space will be limited to 24 participants – and although the workshop is open to all, priority will be given to Asian applicants participating in the International Conference of Conservation Biology (ICCB).

Important: In order to apply to the workshop, potential participants are expected to submit an expression of interest form and a complete grant application for review by May 30th, 2019.

Purpose of the Workshop

The workshop is intended to provide information about and practice developing key attributes of a successful NGS grant. Participants will receive one-on-one feedback on their projects from NGS grants staff. In addition, the in-person workshop will encourage collaborations across disciplines and sectors to help cultivate new ideas and innovation. The workshop will provide an opportunity for individuals to interact and help each other develop and improve project ideas, and connect potential grantees with NGS personnel.
