New Pilot - CRF Graduate Student Scholars Grant Writing Program
Intensive support to develop NSF and NIH pre-doctoral fellowship applications
The Center for Research on Families has developed a pilot program to facilitate and support graduate students who are conducting family research in the development of successful graduate fellowship applications. Applicants must be in the first three years of a graduate PhD program; preference will be given to students earlier in their training. This pilot program is a 9-month program designed specifically for NSF and NIH pre-doctoral fellowship proposals. Selected scholars will receive mentoring and support throughout the grant development process, including: developing, refining and communicating your ideas, your approach, and your methodology. Scholars will meet bi-weekly from March to December with a timeline and objectives for each meeting and intensive writing over the summer. Scholars will receive training on topics related to the grant writing process, ongoing feedback from faculty, mentors and peers as well as feedback from a pre-review panel. The program can help with formatting your proposal and assist with the submission process.
