Grant Pacing Workshop Opportunity for October K and R01 Awards

Kate Stuart
February 25, 2015

Are you planning a K or R01 award submission for October 2015? Do you want to learn more about pacing yourself smoothly to completion of your application? Join us for a practical series of workshops and peer accountability meetings designed to help you prepare the best possible grant. Break it Down to Build it Better consists of two workshops: a half-day session followed by an all-day workshop. Both sessions involve pre-work. During workshops you will have many opportunities to ask questions, troubleshoot problems, and work on your upcoming submission.

 

You must be submitting a grant in October to participate and must commit to both sessions and the majority of the group meetings. Up to 16 individuals will be able to participate. Reply by March 13 to reserve your spot.
