FHCRC Viral Pathogenesis Training Grant Application Form

For your application:

  1. Fill out the form below completely (including a title and abstract of 250 words) and submit online.

  2. Send your CV and proposal as attached word or PDF documents in an e-mail to Marci Burden, mburden@fhcrc.org. The proposal should be no more than 2 single spaced pages (12 pt. type, references may be on a third page). The general NIH format should be used [Specific Aims, Significance, Innnovation, Approach]. The Title and 250-word maximum Abstract is not included in the 2 page limit. 

    The proposal must be relevant to viral pathogenesis and the relevance should be discussed in the application. Please include an explanation of how your research reflects the training grant's goals. This may be included in the Abstract, Background and Significance, or a paragraph at the end of the proposal.

  3. Request letters of recommendations from 2 individuals that are NOT your mentor.  In addition, the mentor should fill out the mentor summary form.  In the past, we have asked for more traditional letters.  But all the mentor letters said their student was one of the best they have ever seen and they should be funded, which was not helpful to the review committee.  This year we are trying out a mentor summary form that we hope will be more informative to the committee.   Since the success and future funding of the training grant depends on the success of the students it supports, the review committee would appreciate an honest and realistic summary of the student.

 

Letters and mentor form should be sent to:
