TODAY: Fursca Summer Proposal Peer Review Session

Today: Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 5 p.m. in the Library Family Room — Pizza and Snacks included.

Research proposals can be challenging to write. They have many parts (project goals, outcomes, timelines, abstract, etc.) and you’re expected to be clear and concise in each one!

See how others are approaching this challenge and get feedback on your draft proposal — our FURSCA Ambassadors will be there along with the Directors of FURSCA and Writing and Consulting.
