Grant Writing Panel

  • Monadnock Room - 2nd floor (map)

Many early career researchers are highly motivated to obtain fellowships, grants and other types of funding to establish a strong track record of external support prior to going on the job market.  In this interactive workshop, panelists will provide a 45 minute interactive overview of common funding sources (NIH, NSF, DARPA, DoD) followed by a series of short breakout sessions to discuss 1) organizing and writing specific aims, 2) incorporating preliminary data, 3) preparing a budget, and 4) avoiding common pitfalls and errors. This workshop will help postdocs start thinking about how to plan a program of research that is original and long-term. Panelists will be invited to provide insights from their own experience, as well as from reviewing grants which have been successfully funded.
