We are also offering a LIMITED number of 45-minute individual consultations with Ms. Deckard. During the consultation participants will discuss individual circumstances and will be required to submit any relevant materials (solicitations, prior reviews, draft Specific Aims, etc.) in advance to no later than Monday, May 6, 2022.

The session “will cover articulating your research agenda, understanding funding agencies, identifying and analyzing funding opportunities (including those for IDeA States), recruiting mentors and collaborations, positioning, developing a project plan, and identifying and talking to your program officer.”  The second part of the day “will focus on the nitty gritty of writing your proposal, stepping through typical sections and discussing what each should accomplish and mistakes to avoid, the review process, and how to interpret and respond to reviews. Participants will participate in a number of exercises during the workshop sessions, including identifying their program officer, mock discussion with their P.O., and participating in a mock review panel.” Questions and discussions will be encouraged throughout the workshop. All participants will receive a link to download the workshop materials.”
