Grant Writing Workshop

November 9, 2017 • 1:30-5:30 p.m.



When seeking career development awards, research grants or academic and institutional grants, applicants need to have a firm understanding of the different mechanisms of funding available, time management techniques, dos and don’ts in grant writing, and how to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls. The SITC Grant Writing Workshop will provide attendees with a solid foundation of grant writing basics as well as specific pearls of wisdom from experienced study section reviewers and chairs. Participants will convene for a comprehensive introduction to grant writing and then will split into two breakouts to take a deeper dive into career development awards or research grants, based on their most immediate career needs.
