It is important for scholars to receive funding to support their projects and provide services to families. However, the grant writing process can take a lot of time and preparation. This is particularly challenging for those that are not familiar with the application and review process of the funding institution.

In this webinar, presenter Joseph G. Grzywacz, Ph.D., will provide an introduction to the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) process of funding proposals. Specifically, he will share with attendees how to decide on the best mechanism to apply for funding (e.g., R21), explain how proposals are reviewed, and provide information that will increase the chances of receiving funding. Thus, attendees will gain insight on the skills needed for advancing one’s research agenda by understanding how to improve their ability to write grant proposals that are funded.

Overall, attendees will leave this webinar with the ability to:

  • Use the three principles of grant writing in my grant to improve reviewer scores;
  • Select the NIH research mechanism best suited for my proposed project; and
  • Apply the fundamentals of scoring instructions provided to reviewers to improve my grant.

Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
