Grant Writing Workshop


EthicalMedTech Pre-Clearance Approved

Statement of Need
The National Institute of Health receives between fifty-five and seventy thousand grant applications per year. Of those grants submitted twenty to thirty percent receive support. With very few training seminars available focusing directly on the skills needed to have successful grants applications, this workshop is designed to help professionals applying for funding better understand the complex nature of and most current guidelines for preparing and submitting grant proposals. Through the use of lectures focused on the entire grant writing process and hands on mock study sessions providing analysis of actual grants, participants will be given the proper assistance to minimize misunderstandings and clarify the ambiguities of the grant writing process. 

Learning Objectives

  • Create Career Development and Training Grants Under the New NIH Guidelines for Applicants
  • Analyze Outcomes Research and Clinical Research Networks
  • Assess the Structure and Components of a Grant
  • Identify Extramural Program and Funding Opportunities - NCI and NHLBI
