Spring 2018 Grant Writing Workshop

Enrollment is now open for the COBRE-PSF Spring 2018 Grant Writing Workshop.

One of the major component activities for the NIH COBRE in Protein Structure and Function is a mentored writing program aimed at helping faculty write stronger grant applications. In Spring 2018 the COBRE-PSF is offering, free of charge, a proposal-writing workshop with a limited number of slots available. Note that by the end of the workshop, each participant will have produced a thoroughly critiqued and reviewed proposal ready for submission to a funding agency.

The Workshop is aimed at faculty—junior or senior, chemist or biologist, tenured or tenure-track—at the University of Kansas, KU Medical Center, Kansas State University and Wichita State University.

The Workshop consists of three essential component activities:

1)   Attend the seminar “Writing Strong Proposals";

2)   Write a Specific Aims page, submit it for review and then participate in a two- to three-hour hands-on critiquing session in which workshop participants will critique each other’s writing and be critiqued by several experienced authors, and,

3)   Write a complete grant application, submit it for review and then participate in a mock study section in which workshop participants will critique each other’s writing and be critiqued by several experienced authors.

Applications to participate in the Workshop are due on or before Noon on Monday, February 19, 2018 and should be submitted to Cynthia Beall.
