Speakers: NIH Staff and Principal Investigators

This workshop will focus on the important issues involved in preparing a high quality grant application. Participants will learn about the important skills and features associated with the art form of grantsmanship needed to write competitive applications for funding from the NIH. The workshop will be led by a staff member from the National Institutes of Health and speakers will include successful grantees speaking on how they approached the problem of preparing the grant application. Presentations will explore the peer review process, and how to structure, write, and fine-tune a competitive application for funding consideration. Included will be a mock review of real grants by scientists to demonstrate the peer review process and what factors are associated with assessing the strengths and weaknesses of applications. Finally, a presentation will address institute announcements and available funding at NIH.
