Write Winning NIH Proposals – Graduate Student Information

Syracuse University’s Office of Research is pleased to sponsor two proposal-writing workshops focused on competitive proposals to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The first workshop, Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals,  will be held October 7, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. This virtual workshop will comprehensively address both practical and conceptual aspects that are important to writing competitive grant proposals to NIH and other health related research programs. In this workshop, Dr. Lauren Broyles from the Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops will emphasize proposal idea development, identification of the appropriate program office, how to write for reviewers, and a detailed breakdown of proposal components. At the completion of this seminar, participants will be able to organize and plan a proposal; understand the role and mindset of reviewers; develop a novel, fundable idea; know which grant mechanism is right for them; and execute specific strategies for each major section.

The second workshop, Write Winning NIH Renewals and Resubmissionsis limited to faculty and staff.

All participants will receive an extensive handout, as well as a hardcopy of The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook.
