Workshop: How to Write a Successful Grant Application

Date/Time: April 10, 2019

Location: National Institute of Mental Health, Rooms A1/A2, Bethesda, MD

On April 10, 2019, the NIMH Center for Global Mental Health Research will hold a workshop on how to write a grant application for submission to NIH, and what to expect from scientific peer review.  We encourage participation from early-career and early-stage investigators including but not limited to graduate students, junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows, trainees and others (e.g., non-U.S. researchers having limited experience with NIH funding processes) who attend the 10th anniversary global mental health conference.

This one-day workshop will provide a broad overview of topics that include:

  • Identifying NIH funding opportunities
  • Developing a study concept and communicating with NIH Program Officers
  • Moving from concept to application
  • Clinical research guidelines including those related to data and safety monitoring, good clinical practice, and human subjects’ protections
  • Submitting an application to the NIH using the Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST)
  • Grant application scientific peer review
  • Current funding opportunities for research and training in global mental health

There is no cost to attend but interested participants must register because of limited space. After capacity is reached, there will be a webinar platform available for remote participation.

Registration for the Grant Writing Workshop is closed.
