During this course, students will develop a grant proposal on a research topic of their choice. The proposal will be written in the format of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship (Parent F31) grant application. The application will include specific aims and a research plan that includes significance, innovation, and approach. The proposal will also include a research training plan as required by the NIH. Students will also participate in a mock study section (grant review). Students are encouraged to use this opportunity to develop an application for submission to the NIH for support of their dissertation work.
