Arizona State University (ASU-US) has established the Center of Excellence for Energy (COE) in Egypt with funding and support from USAID. The COE project is a partnership between ASU-US and three Egyptian partner universities (EPUs): Ain Shams University, Aswan University, and Mansoura University. The COE’s goal is to improve the capacity of Egypt’s higher education institutions to drive public and private sector innovation,

The Center of Excellence for Energy will host a Proposal Writing and Grant Making workshop to teach faculty and other senior researchers skills that are critical to designing successful research projects and writing grant proposals to fund them. Learn the process from start to finish, including preparation, budgeting, and proposal writing, as well as “customer discovery” to identify technical problems and test hypotheses and “storyboarding” to facilitate audience engagement. Through the in-person workshop and pre- and post-workshop virtual seminars, participants will implement the taught processes to advance the development of a proposal.

Learning outcomes:

  • Validation and refinement of problem statements using customer discovery
  • Creation of Gantt charts that provide projects with structure (scope of work)
  • Budgeting to match a scope of work
  • Selecting partners to achieve project goals
  • Using storyboarding to generate graphical outlines of proposals
  • Writing for the reviewer
  • A draft proposal that embodies the above learning
