*New* Apply for CSDE’s Summer Grant Writing Program! (due 04/30/2021)

Posted: 4/6/2021 (CSDE Research)

CSDE is inviting applications for its 4th annual Summer Grant Writing Program – a chance for you to learn more about NIH grant-writing and to workshop your proposal with other participants and with experienced senior faculty. Writing a grant in isolation can be mystifying—instead, we aim to create a group experience that is still hard work, but which will be supportive, fun, productive, and ultimately rewarding. All CSDE affiliates (local or regional) are eligible to apply. UW post-docs are eligible to apply only if they plan a training grant centered at UW. Applications from collaborative teams, anticipating a multiple PI arrangement, are also encouraged.  Applications are due Friday, April 30 at 6 pm PDT. For more information and to apply, visit this link. Please email CSDE Development Core Director Steve Goodreau ( with any questions!

In brief, participants will develop proposals over the course of the summer, with support and reviews from senior mentors, other participants, and the program coordinator Steve Goodreau. All applicants must include a letter from a relevant unit head (department/school/center/college/etc.) indicating that they support the application, and that the applicant holds a position that makes them eligible to receive external funding. Letters are also encouraged (but not required) to indicate some form of matching support (e.g. some summer salary, research expenses, or RA support, all paid directly from the unit to the participant).
