The Grant Review and Support Program (GRASP) is aimed at helping junior investigators at Harvard to successfully make the transition from a K award to their first R01 grant or equivalent. GRASP continues to develop grant-writing tools and training opportunities for K awardees that will increase their chances of obtaining independent research funding.
One major value produced by GRASP is the Elements of Grant Writing, an extensive online toolkit containing a wealth of information from researchers who have ample experience successfully applying for grant funding. It also provides investigators with timelines and work plan templates to help manage the grant application process. The resources found in the Elements of Grant Writing are useful for investigators seeking funding from federal, foundation, or corporate sources. These tools are available to all members of the Harvard community with a Harvard PIN or eCommons ID.
K-to-R Longitudinal Support Initiative
GRASP's K-to-R Longitudinal Support Initiative trains investigators with NIH K grants to use GRASP tools and resources to organize and develop their grant applications. During a two-day orientation and grant-writing workshop, participants will receive a comprehensive review of how to write an R01 grant and learn about the inside workings of an NIH study section. Participants of the K-to-R Longitudinal Support Initiative will then receive ongoing guidance throughout the duration of their K awards as they craft their R01 applications.
