NRMN Grant Proposal Writing & Professional Development Coaching Groups

National Research Mentoring Network Grant Proposal Writing & Professional Development Coaching Groups

Deadline Extended to May 17, 2016

Apply now for intensive grant proposal writing
coaching groups starting in July 2016!

NRMN’s grantwriting groups are more than just 1-2 day workshops! Each model is an intensive program for junior investigators to work closely with experienced faculty members and peers on National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant proposals. See details below!

NRMN-Proposal Preparation Program (P3)

Program Overview: In today’s highly competitive funding climate, the importance of strong proposal writing skills cannot be overstated. Investigators must assume that their great research ideas will be competing against a wealth of other great ideas; the proposals that ‘rise above’ are those that spark an exceptionally high level of enthusiasm in reviewers by presenting compelling arguments for not only the research’s methodologic rigor, but also the project’s anticipated impact on the field, significance for various stakeholders (patients, researchers, clinicians, investigators in different but related fields), degree of innovation, and alignment with the funding agency’s priority areas. All of these proposal features are addressed during coaching sessions within the NRMN-P3 program.

Application deadline: May 17 at midnight CDT

In-person kickoff: July 10-12 (in Minneapolis)
