Grant Development

Grant writing programs

Research Services offers UNE researchers a range of tailored grant writing programs in the second half of the year. These are promoted via the une-research newsgroup and are led by Dr Fiona Utley, Research Services' Research Development leader. The development programs are designed to hone researcher grant writing skills and to keep researchers updated on funding body expectations. If you wish to register your interest in participating in a program to improve your grant writing skills, please email:
