    Session Agenda

    We are glad to announce that Enago in collaboration with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals will conduct another informative online session assisting research scholars at different career stages in achieving publication success.

    Research and funding go hand in hand, and the ability to attain funding is a real necessity and a valuable skill for a successful career in academia. Many private and public funding organizations support research in the interest of the advancement of science and technology. However, with a substantial increase in the number of proposals being submitted for review, minute differences and detailing in proposals counts most. Competition for grants and fellowships is intensifying and it is important for researchers to not only recognize a good call for applications that matches their profile and requirement but also write an excellent research proposal. Our upcoming webinar aims to educate researchers about the process of creating a persuasive and compelling proposal for grant funding. Researchers will have a better understanding of the following:

    • How to choose between a grant and a fellowship?
    • How to perform extensive research for available grants?
    • How to identify the different funding bodies and their interests?
    • How to read and select the most fitting call for applications?
    • Basic building blocks of writing an impactful research proposal
    • How to make your proposal engaging and appealing to the funders?
    • Understanding the steps involved pre- and post-submission
