2016-2017 NIH Grant Proposal Writing Program

PI-eligible researchers once again have the opportunity, at no cost to them, to work with a highly experienced consultant to develop a submission-ready proposal to the National Institutes of Health in June 2017. The 2016-2017 NIH Grant Proposal Writing Program will connect principal investigators with Dr. John D. Robertson, a consultant with Grant Writer's Seminars and Workshops (GWSW). For each member of this group, Dr. Robertson will

  • provide a detailed, written critique of his/her pre-proposal’s grantsmanship,
  • facilitate a half-day pre-proposal critiquing workshop at Texas A&M,
  • meet in-person for a one-on-one consultation following the half-day workshop, and
  • provide individualized critiques and feedback on the full proposal via email.

The $3,600 program fee is paid for by the Division of Research and the participant's department and/or college. The application deadline is October 5, 2016. A separate pre-proposal will be due to GWSW on November 20, 2016.

Important Note: Applicants to this program are required to attend the September 22, 2016, seminar, Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals, at Texas A&M University (see above).
