Writing a K Award proposal takes a lot of time and organization. This K Award proposal writing training strand is designed to help you write a better proposal and get advice from scientists who have been awarded Ks and faculty who have sat on K Award study sections. You will also have the opportunity to evaluate multiple proposals in a mock study section and have access to successful proposals (if you participate in the mock study section).
This is NOT a sit-in-a-classroom-for-8-hours-and-try-to-absorb-everything approach. This training consists of the following components:
The basics of writing a proposal, learned on your own via videos and online reading.
Advice from expert panels where you can ask questions
A mock study section so you can learn by critiquing proposals
Examples of successful proposals for those who participate in the mock study section (password protected)
Much of this training is self-directed learning, with in-person components added to deepen your learning and understanding.
The Basics of K proposal writing, with an emphasis on K99s and K22s
Panels every Fall to get advice from experts, including:
Postdocs who have successfully received a K award
Faculty who have served on K Award Study Sections
