Grant Writing Classes

This virtual four-week class is designed for students/postdocs who are planning on submitting a new or revised NRSA, K99/R00, K22, or other grant and is offered every spring and fall. This course is intended for trainees who have a basic understanding of the grant application process and are actively working on a draft of their application. It is both a didactic course and a small interactive writing class designed to provide feedback on crucial sections of grants. Participants can share their drafts with the class and engage in discussion of other participants’ drafts. Those who are submitting a grant are given the opportunity to participate in a mock study section where faculty members give feedback on the grant before submission.

Summer 2023 Grant Writing Classes will be announced soon.
