CRDF Global is seeking a local consultant to assist with the implementation of a Malaysia technical writing and grantsmanship training program from December 2019 – April 2020. Working as an integral part of the implementing team, the consultant will support a series of two hands-on grantsmanship workshops to familiarize up to twenty participants with the technical grant-writing process. Both during and following the completion of workshops, the consultant will assist with participant team communication and coordination and provide review to assist participants in the development of abstracts, white papers, and draft full proposals.
The purpose of this program is to provide participants with the skills to develop competitive research proposals and familiarize them with the process of applying for international grant funding. Because this program is sponsored by BTRP, participants will focus attention specifically on developing a proposal to the program’s Fundamental Research Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). The BAA may be viewed by following this link (click on the frbaa14-24 amendment 11 posting.pdf file located under the “Related Documents” tab), paying particular attention to the opportunity description outlined in the Thrust Area 6 section on pages 7-9 of the document.
