Spring Proposal Bootcamp: Biomedical & Biosciences
BIOS 263: Applied Grant-Writing Skills for Fellowships
Registration is now closed. Email Crystal Botham (email@example.com) before April 1 if you are interested in the Bootcamp.
The Spring Proposal Bootcamp: Biomedical & Biosciences is specifically tailored for graduate students applying to fellowships, for example the NIH F31 or F30, and postdocs writing the NIH NRSA Fellowship F32. Bootcamp participants develop proposals through guided exercises with an emphasis on establishing a writing practice, in-class peer review, and focused faculty feedback.
The 2019 Spring Proposal Bootcamp starts the first week of Stanford’s Spring quarter (starting April 1 and ending June 3). Two weekly meeting times are available in the Spring Proposal Bootcamp: Mondays 12:30-2:30 PM or Mondays 2:30-4:30 PM. Space is limited so please only sign up if you are committed to attend and participate fully in the entire multi-week course.
Comments from our participants:
“The faculty review workshops are fantastic and maybe a once-in-a-life kind of experience”
“The deadlines forced me to think about my drafts and writing a compelling grant in a timely manner. Otherwise, I would have crammed it into 2-3 weeks before the deadline.”
“The peer review process helped me see my proposal through the eyes of a critical reviewer”
“It improved my writing skills”
“I really appreciated the grant coach office hours”
“Meeting up with other people that were ‘in the same boat’ as me was helpful”
The Proposal Bootcamp was honored with an Innovations in Research Education Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
