The Grant Review and Support Program (GRASP) is a multi-year program that guides investigators who have already obtained NIH K grants to understand the grant writing process, gain new skills, and write their R01 grant applications. GRASP begins with an orientation workshop that provides participants with advice in grant writing, as well as training in using the resources of the Elements of Grant Writing. Participants will then receive ongoing grant preparation support and guidance from the GRASP team throughout the duration of their K awards. Armed with the knowledge and tools provided by GRASP, participants will be ready to submit an R01 grant application with a greater chance of being funded.
- Accepted applicants of GRASP must commit to the following:
