The NIH Grant Writing Workshop

consists of two lectures and a small group segment facilitated by experienced mentors (faculty, postdocs and PhD students) to teach grant writing skills with the goal of applying to an appropriate NIH fellowship or grant. Students in health science-related disciplines, who are interested in applying for fellowships outside the NIH, are invited to attend. 

The NIH workshop is offered to graduate students and postdocs who plan to apply for NIH F and K grants, and to private foundation fellowships in the health sciences.
