NIH Grants Seminar Workshop Series
“F-Troop!” seminar is a hands-on grant writing workshop
targeted to pre- and postdoctoral trainees who are currently
working to prepare an application for an individual NRSA
Fellowship (F Awards, including F30, F31, or F32) for submission
to the NIH. Equivalent fellowship applications to other funding
agencies are also encompassed by this program.
Note: A separate advance registration process is required to
participate in the “F-Troop! F-Grants: Five Components” seminar.
All applicants/registrants must be pre-approved to attend this
FREE seminar. Participation in this seminar is limited to graduate
students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited.
This widely acclaimed seminar comprehensively addresses
both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to the
proposal-writing process. It is designed for faculty members and
advanced postdoctoral fellows who have had some exposure to
writing grant applications, either through training/ mentoring or
personal experience. The presentation is tailored to meet the
needs of the audience, i.e., to emphasize the funding agencies
(federal, private, and/or industrial sources) that are of greatest
interest to the attendees. Emphasis is given to such things as
idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting
agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that
are of proven value in presenting an applicant’s case to reviewers.
This seminar program presented at EB 2013 will focus on
NIH and emphasize how to cope with the changes in how grant
proposals to NIH are written and reviewed. Regardless of the
agency, participants are taught to write with a linear progression
of logic, which leads reviewers through their applications. It is
stressed that applicants are writing for two different audiences –
the assigned reviewers, who have read the application in its
entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little,
or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review
