Course Description

Stay on a grantwriting schedule as we suggest weekly actions and tips, and point out common missteps in advance of the R-series deadlines. In the 10 weeks leading up to the R01 A0 deadlines (Feb 5, June 5, Oct 5,) you can read weekly lessons leading you through major stages of the grantwriting process. You will receive curated grantsmanship strategies to match up with your evolving draft. We’ll also share highlights from my virtual training courses. Note that while prompts lead to the R01 A0 deadline, the information and timing would help those writing to most major R- or K-series submission or resubmission deadlines.

Helping over 2000+ learners from all skill levels

Our students have grown their skills by taking our courses. Here are just a few of their stories.

You incorporate high level strategy and critical detail and what I call the “Jewish mother stuff”, noodging your Co-I’s to get their letters done and returned, noodging them again when they send them unsigned or they just aren’t perfect, even down to celebrating the submission with champagne because getting a great proposal out the door IS an accomplishment regardless of whether it is ultimately funded. Just wanted you to know I am loving this series!
