Crafting a Compelling Training Plan
Friday, October 11, 2019 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Crafting a compelling training plan for a fellowship or career development award requires the applicant to develop a framework to gain needed mentoring, skills, and experiences that build on prior training and/or experiences. At this workshop, participants will acquire an understanding of the importance of the Training Plan for graduate and postdoc proposals, and how the Training Plan section is distinct from the Research Plan and Candidate Background sections. Participants will come away with a draft of the elements that they can use to create their own compelling training plan.
Target Audience: Graduate students and postdocs preparing a NIH NRSA F30, F32, F32 Fellowship proposals as well as other fellowship or career development award proposals that have a training plan component.
