A recording of the SCAR-COMNAP-APECS Spanish language Fellowships application writing webinar hosted in March is now available from the SCAR Fellowships Mentoring page.

Writing about research can be difficult, writing in your second (or third) language poses yet another set of challenges. So building on the success of the first webinar that was in English, SCAR, COMNAP and APECS partnered again to hold a similar training webinar in March 2017, but this time in Spanish. This webinar aimed to provide additional tips and tricks for writing applications in English for Spanish speakers.

We had 46 participants joining the webinar, with lots of good advice from a highly qualified and experienced panel, and a wide range of questions from the participants.

 

To complement the original English language webinar a "Writing for Success" document was produced which includes information on the evaluation of proposals, feedback on positive examples as well as areas where improvement is often needed from those who review applications, and some Frequently Asked Questions on the technical details of submitting an application (also see the FAQs page as new questions are being added regularly, based on the queries we receive).

The deadline for applications for this year's Fellowships Programme is 1 July. For more information, visit the Fellowships Detailed Information page.
