NIH/NSF grant writing workshops

May 30, 2013

The Grant Training Center will host two workshops for researchers looking to submit winning grant proposals at IUPUI: one for submitting proposals to the National Institute of Health and the other for submitting proposals to the National Science Foundation.

The NIH workshop will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 25. Ronald Sakaguchi, M.D., a professor and academic director at the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University, will lead the workshop. Dr. Sakaguchi, who has led seminars on time management and strategic thinking, will update seasoned researchers on the latest NIH requirements.

The ultimate purpose of the workshop is to provide a competitive advantage for a successful NIH proposal.

  • Finding the right program and grant mechanism for your idea
  • Understanding the new NIH scoring system and review process
  • Building an airtight case for funding
  • Revising your proposal for resubmission
  • Reading and interpreting RFAs
