Framing A Research Question

, Bender Library Graduate Research Center Classroom

Updated 1/21/14

Presented by Paula Warrick, Career Center, Office of Merit Awards

Successful applications for nationally comptitive grants have one element in common: a clear and compelling central question or research problem. Developing such a question usually requires many drafts and a process of trial and error. In this session we will address some of the challenges associated with framing a research question, such as determining the appropriate breadth versus narrowness of the topic achieving the right level of concision and "punch," and anticipating the needs and expectations of national screening committees. This session is intended for students who expect to apply for awards to fund field research or an international internship.
