in writing a NIH Proposal? Get expert advice, feedback, and support from an
intimate grant writing coaching group! The grant writing coaching group
model is one that has been developed and used at Northwestern University
Feinberg School of Medicine (NU) for over 10 years and expanded to national
groups since 2014 through the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN). It is
designed for early career scientists who are ACTIVELY WRITING an NIH-style
predoctoral fellowship, career development award, or R-type research proposal. Writing
groups are led by an accomplished, NIH-funded scientist who has been specially
trained in the coaching group model. Through collaboration with SACNAS, writing
groups of 3-5 individuals, plus the coach, will kick-off their groups the day
before the SACNAS conference. In the day-long meeting, participants are
introduced to the NU model of writing and begin the iterative group feedback
process, focusing initially on a good working draft of the Specific Aims Page.
After the first meeting, groups will meet virtually every week for 90-120
minutes using distance technology, providing feedback on revised Aims Pages and
subsequently moving on to Significance, Innovation, and Training sections.
Groups typically meet for 2-3 months, ideally culminating with the submission
of the proposal. This event is included in the SACNAS pre-conference workshop offerings during the 2018
SACNAS conference in San Antonio, TX. Application Deadline: Monday, September 10, 12am/midnight CST
