Led by faculty with extensive experience in successful research grant writing, the K&R Writers Series is supported by senior faculty representing multiple disciplines, and by staff with expertise in grant writing.
- Didactic materials and writing assignments provided prior to each session.
- Each participant will be paired with a faculty member who will provide written feedback throughout the program.

- Have already identified a funding mechanism with help from your primary scientific mentor and verified your eligibility.
- Provide a letter of commitment from your primary scientific mentor who will review your proposal assignments throughout the series.
- Submit: a current CV, draft Biosketch, draft Specific Aims page or a 1-page outline of the proposed research project, and a 1-page outline of the approach section (research strategy).
- Commit to attending at least 80%of required sessions and completing all relevant grant application assignments.
(*Consideration will be given to senior-level post-doctoral fellows eligible for K99/R00 or similar grants specifically for transition to faculty on a case-by-case basis and dependent upon capacity.)
