Testimonials
I cannot recommend The Fellowship Grant Pacing Workshop highly enough. From navigating the FOA, to breaking down the application into its individual components, to planning a schedule to keep myself on track while still allowing flexibility, the skills and knowledge I acquired in this workshop were instrumental in helping me submit a successful fellowship grant application.

~ Grant Pacing Workshop Participant

As a new investigator with a K award, it's hard to get a grasp on all the pieces involved in submitting your first R01 proposal. The workshop really helped me get a handle on the scale and scope of this task, as well as resources available within Vanderbilt to help me as I go through the process.”

~ Grant Pacing Workshop Participant

I participated in this workshop series for the June submission cycle and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to submit in October! Even established PIs can benefit from the scheduling techniques and timeline management we learned.
