Grant Writing Clinic
Application Submission Now Open!
SRI is pleased to offer a Grant Writing Clinic at the 2021 Annual Meeting directly following the Career Development Workshops on Friday, July 9 at 12:15 pm - 3:00 pm in Boston, MA, USA. This clinic is led by Thomas Jansson, MD, PhD, Dorothy Sojka, PhD and the Career Development Committee.
This Grant Writing Clinic will be based on a one-page summary of a research proposal submitted by the participants. This one-page summary is mandatory for proposals to many funding agencies (including the National Institute of Health in the US: Specific Aims page). However even if the format of your particular grant proposal does not include a one-page summary, it is highly recommended to develop your grant proposal in this concise format.
- Participants must be an SRI Member in good standing
- Participants can be either an In Training or Early Career Investigator
- In Training Investigator is defined as a full-time postdoctoral trainee, resident, or fellow, or a student enrolled in a formally approved training program leading to a degree (BA, BS, MD, PhD, MS, MPH, DVM).
- Early Career Investigator is defined as someone within their first 5 years of a faculty or faculty equivalent position
- Submission of an abstract for the 2021 Annual Meeting is required
- Must have firm plans to submit a full grant proposal in 2021, based on the one-page summary*
*Please contact the SRI Office if you have any questions regarding the criteria.
