We invite the full-time faculty to participate in a seminar-workshop on
Writing Research Grant Proposals on September 14, Friday, 430-6 pm, at
the Blue Bag Cafe (Gonzaga Function Room A). A second, follow-up session
is scheduled on October 5, Friday, 430-6 pm.

The specific objective of the seminar is to help prepare those faculty who
intend to submit proposals to the URC/LS Scholarly Work Faculty Grant.
More generally, the seminar is also a means to support faculty who are
actively engaged in research and are seeking to hone their skills in

The format of the seminar-workshop is two-pronged:

2) A second session will be scheduled three weeks later on Oct 5, where
the participants from the first session would be bringing with them their
initial drafts (the resource person would be giving them "homework" and
pointers after the first session) for discussion and feedback with the
resource person and other participants. The format of this session will
be more workshop-like.

The resource person is Dr. Cristina Montiel of the Ateneo Psychology
Department. Dr. Montiel has extensive experience in writing successful
grant proposals, and her research has been funded by both local and
international agencies. She is also well-published in local and ISI
journals, and has recently received the CHED Republika Zonal Award for
Most Outstanding Social Science Research. Dr. Montiel is also one of the
most well-respected research professors in the Psychology Department.

Dr. Erwin Enriquez of the Chemistry Department will also be present to
provide additional inputs and insights from his experiences in writing
grant proposals and as former LS Research Coordinator and URC member.

Please RSVP to Ms. Marla Andrada of the LSVP's office at local 5004, or at
