Grant Writing Club

Grant Writing Club is designed for first-year fellows and teaches the fundamentals of grant writing, including learning about all of the components of the grant submission. The club culminates with participants submitting a completed Maternal & Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) grant in February. Additionally, postdocs are welcome to participate in preparation for submitting a grant in March.

The club is highly interactive and includes homework to keep participants on track. Fellows and postdocs are guided step-by-step as their drafts develop and are refined through peer feedback. Sessions include reviewing and writing:

  • Biosketches
  • Specific Aims
  • Research Plans
  • Personal Statements
  • Mentoring Plans

Fellows and postdocs will be able to participate in a mock grant review in January and will receive feedback on their grants in time for submission.
