On Demand

These peer groups are facilitated for grant writers who are currently generating proposals to submit to NIH, NSF-CAREER, or other funding organizations. For writers interested in submitting to “no-deadline” NSF programs, the NSF CSUW-SYD (set your deadline-SYD) groups are designed so that researchers can set and meet their own submission goals.

Early sessions focus on generating the proposal; later sessions cover editing and proofreading methods and will include feedback from participants.

Attendees must commit to attending a minimum of 3 sessions and to reading and to providing feedback to 1 to 2 other participating writers.

The flexible weeks (3+ weeks) are designed to allow for each group of grant writers to fashion a group that best suits their purposes.
