Lazy summer? Not a chance. We’ve got work to do!

Join the Edge for Scholars Online Grant Writing Workshop, for 12 weeks of free guided training starting July 11. Content includes key skills, structure, and supports for accountability to write an outstanding grant. This workshop is ideal for October NIH submissions.

Sarah Dobson teaches and coaches a group of grant authors, including face-to-face virtual meetings. As a grant consultant and academic editor, she consistently receives strong ratings for this workshop that has grown out of more than 16 years of experience working with clinical and translational scientists on grants and academic publications.

Over a thousand researchers have taken this workshop, and 98% would recommend it to a colleague. Participants have praised the “fresh perspective” and specific tools, templates, and guidelines that are easy to apply to grant writing. As one writer said, “I know my content, but I struggled with communicating it. This workshop really helped me to see through my reviewer’s eyes.” Many have been so encouraged by the online community that they finished drafts of their grants more than a month before the deadline, allowing time for internal feedback.

The online workshop includes:

  • Six core video lessons covering planning, strategy, and writing techniques
  • An online community for daily support and accountability
  • Biweekly Q&As to answer specific questions about writing your grant
  • Bonus lessons and activities

By the end of the workshop, which runs from July to late September, you’ll be able to confidently submit a clear, compelling, and persuasive grant.

This workshop is intended for PIs who are planning to submit applications for fall NIH deadlines. But the lessons and community support will be valuable for you no matter which granting agency you’re applying to. For those not planning to submit this fall, you’re welcome to join us to get a head start on your next application (your future self will give you a high five for starting so early).

Could you please give details: 12 weeks seem to be too long for entrepreneurs

The workshop is aimed at scientific and medical researchers working at universities, who do require this amount of time, rather than entrepreneurs.

What time is the workshop each week?

Most of the workshop is viewed at your own pace. The live calls are typically at 12 PM Pacific Time on Fridays.

Jana Leary says:

Which types of grants will this workshop cover?  I am planning to submit an external K this fall.

This workshop is primarily aimed at R01 or similar grants, but the advice is generalizable to Ks, Fs, and other types of grants.

I will be out the seocnd and third weeks of July but would love to be aprt of the workshop. Can I still register? If not will there be another workshop in the Fall?
Thanks ,

Hi Rafel,

You can still register! Most content is asynchronous, so you can participate as your schedule allows.
