The Phases of Grant Writing: Preparing Successful Grants Applications


Please join the Tri-Institutional Collaboration Network (TCN) as it hosts Dr. Steven Kaminsky of the International Rett Syndrome Foundation for a presentation on successful grant writing, from idea vetting and preparation, time management and writing to presentation overview and a discussion of the reviewer’s perspective.  Dr. Kaminsky has a rich history of providing grant writing guidance, including presenting for the NIH’s Bio-Trac Workshops. This presentation will be geared toward non-federal sponsors, however the concepts presented can be applied universally to both non-federal and federal programs.
