Career Development Grants for Pre- and PostDocs - Grant-Writing Symposium
This session will focus on NSF and NIH grants that support graduate students and postdoctoral fellows as they transition through critical career stages, from the initial graduate research fellowship on to becoming an independent investigator with faculty status. We will examine the purpose and structure of NSF Fellowship programs, and Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants as well as NIH funding mechanisms such as F awards, K awards, and the new Pathway to Independence. Requirements unique to career development proposals will be described, and successful proposals will be used to illustrate principles of effective writing. Topics to be discussed include:
  • Choosing the appropriate award track for your career stage
  • Anatomy of a typical career award proposal
  • Understanding the grant review process
  • Contacting grant program officers
