This seminar comprehensively addresses both conceptual and practical aspects that are associated with the grant writing process, often called 'grantsmanship'. This program is appropriate for faculty members who are contemplating a competitive application to federal or state agencies and foundations in either basic science or clinical research.

Emphasis is given to such things as idea development, identification of the most appropriate granting agency, how to write for reviewers, and tips and strategies that are of proven value in presenting an applicant's case to reviewers.

It is stressed that applicants are writing for two different audiences - the assigned reviewers, who have read the application in its entirety, and non-assigned reviewers who may have read little, or nothing, of the proposal before the meeting of the review panel. Strategies designed to merit a fundable priority score are emphasized.

All participants will receive light breakfast, boxed lunch, and a copy of The Grant Application Writer's Workbook. This event will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. and is free and open to all IUSM and IUPUI faculty and learners.
