Grant Proposal Training

Grant Proposal Training

Full-day seminars

Our day-long sessions combine lecture format and engagement activities, and are customized based on your needs and the breadth of potential funding targets. We can provide broad-based training, or sessions for identified subgroups and those focused on a single agency or scholarly area. Our training days are designed to convey the fundamentals of proposal writing--concepts backed up with concrete tips and operational strategies--while also providing tools for planning and longer-term sustainability. Programs can be tailored for NIH, NSF, USDA, mission-driven agencies such as NASA or Department of Energy, and for academic Arts & Humanities funding. Programs for more general audiences can serve as effective ways to provide support for diverse groups of faculty.

Half-day seminars

Our half-day sessions allow for intensive focus on select topics and can be customized.

K Awards: A competitive NIH Career Development Award fits together like a complex ecosystem. In this seminar we walk through all the parts of the proposal, emphasizing the purpose of each part and how different sections must mesh.

NSF CAREER: An NSF CAREER award application is more than an NSF Standard Grant with an education plan added in. Highly competitive awards integrate the research and education plan. In this seminar we talk about why and how to create a plan that results in a competitive proposal.

Custom Sessions: What have you identified as a need for your faculty? We can provide a training session for large center grant applications, renewing NIH R01s, or resubmitting proposals.
