Grant Writing Workshop on
Mentored Career Development Awards
Instruction in writing successful grant applications for NIH mentored career
development awards will be presented. Although the workshop uses examples
from patient-oriented research career development awards (K23s), the underlying
concepts for the career development plan, mentoring plan, and research plan
also apply to research scientist development awards (K01s) and clinical
scientist development awards (K08s).
Characteristics of successful mentored career development grant applications
will be presented, including common mistakes to avoid; how to write individual
components of the application; the NIH review process; and how to develop
a responsive resubmission, if needed. While the focus will be on NIH mentored
career development awards, the concepts taught will be applicable to most
other funding sources that support mentored career development awards.
Scholars will pace themselves through the grantwriting process through a series of five pre-recorded lectures.
All course materials and recorded lectures will be posted on the course’s online syllabus.
This course is open to all UCSF personnel at no charge. Please go to the syllabus and follow the instructions to enroll.
