BMI 7301 Grant Writing

3 semester credit hours
Lecture contact hours: 2; Lab contact hours: 3
Classroom instruction
Required for PhD students

Students will develop skills in the planning and execution of grant development. The focus will be on NIH and NSF grants forms, but students will also be exposed to grant applications from private organizations. The goal of the course is to enable students to develop a draft that can be used for the funding of dissertation work or to develop a grant that would allow students to continue their dissertation work in a post-dissertation award. Students will learn how to write the narrative, project time lines, include appropriate evaluation and draft budgets.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will:

  • Compose a fundable grant application.
  • Have an understanding of the NIH grant funding process, as well as the grant funding processes of other governmental and non-governmental agencies and organizations.
