R Club

ABOUT R CLUB

The goal of the R Club Grant Program is to assist early-stage investigators in the preparation of an NIH Research Grant. Specifically, the R Club aims to improve grantsmanship by promoting clarity of thought and logical presentation of a Research Proposal – to have the greatest impact on fundability – by providing:

  • Workshops outlining a step-by-step guide on how to construct a Specific Aims page and a competitive Research Proposal.

  • Proposal examples and templates of supporting documents.

  • Constructive feedback on a Specific Aims page (with tracked revisions, margin comments, and key recommendations).

  • For a select cohort, comprehensive review of a Research Proposal, including scientific content and logical presentation of information (with tracked revisions, margin comments, and key recommendations) by a grant writer.

 

If you are interested in taking part in the R Club Grant Program, please submit the brief REDCap Intake Form.
