An Intensive, Interactive Course for Health Sciences Junior Faculty


GWC enhances junior faculty NIH grantsmanship. Over several months, junior faculty participate in 9 sessions based on structured, formative assessment using The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook (NIH version) and develop a complete draft of an NIH grant proposal. We offer three discipline-versions of GWC: 1) Population and Behavioral Health, 2) Basic and Translational Research, and 3) Automation, Machine-Learning, Computation, and Implementation in Health (subject to change based on faculty interest).

"This course was one of the most useful things i have done for my career development to date."

– 2020 junior faculty participant

"The Grant Writing Course was focused and appropriately paced for a diverse group of junior faculty in basic science and clinical research fields… I look forward to this course becoming an essential part of training for all fellows and junior faculty across Health Sciences."

– christina chambers, phD

"I loved the intensive structure of the course that allowed us to dig deep in how best to present ideas in the NIH grant form."

– davey smith, mD
