Grant Writing Workshops

Training Successful Independent Researchers

Through a series of multi-week workshops, early to mid stage faculty members can learn strategies for creating impactful and successful grant applications, with series tailored to specific types of federal grants. Series focus on NIH grant applications, with targeted attention to specific funding levels such as K01 or R01.

Training focuses on core skills needed in developing a successful application, combined with practical applications through group feedback sessions on participants aims and writing. Workshops intend to strengthen attendee’s understanding of the NIH review process, ability to respond to peer review, and development of scientific innovation. Each series also provided workshops focused on topics specific to the type of application, from developing a well-balanced mentorship team, to participant recruitment strategies and human subject considerations for applications centered around research.
