Scholarship Writing Workshop Series

Are you in graduate school or thinking about going? If so, you may want to consider applying for an academic scholarship. We offer a highly acclaimed series of presentations, the Scholarship Proposal Writing workshops, to help you write successful scholarship proposals.

In these workshops, we give you the tools you need to approach scholarship proposal writing with confidence. Working from samples of winning Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) proposals written by graduate students, we will examine common features of successful proposals, and we will teach you how to apply these writing strategies in your own proposal.

These workshops are open to all current and potential graduate students at Laurier as well as undergraduate students who may be applying for these awards. Although each workshop has an emphasis, students are welcome to attend any session listed.

Scholarship Proposal Writing Workshops are offered exclusively in fall terms.
