Grant Writing Clinic: Your Grant in One Page

Tuesday, March 15 at 9:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m. MST

SRI is pleased to offer a Grant Writing Clinic directly preceding the Career Development Workshops on Tuesday, March 15, 2022 in Denver, CO, USA. This clinic is led by 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.

Eligibility Criteria 

  • 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 2022 Annual Meeting is required
  • Must have firm plans to submit a full grant proposal in 2022, based on the one-page summary*   

*Please contact Jamie Brouws if you have any questions regarding the criteria.
