The Art and Science of Writing K08 or K23 Career Development Grant Application
LIVE Webinar Wednesday, July 27 1:00 P.M. EST • 60 Minutes
Detail Provided by Principal Investigators Association:
Writing for a mentored career development award isn’t hard … once you know all the tricks of the trade. Nonetheless, it is definitely an art. You have to stand out from the crowd and put your best foot forward. There are definite strategies you can use to successfully present yourself, your mentor, your environment, and your career development plans, among others. Second best won’t get you funded. You must convince the NIH that you are worthy of the taxpayers’ money. If you think you are worthy, then convincing the NIH should be easy … with a little help.
