So, you’re thinking of a Graduate Fellowship Proposal why write one?

where does this fit in my career? when do I write this?

what is in a fellowship proposal anyway? what makes a strong proposal?

why write one? 1. Develop your own ideas 2. Benefits associated with grant 3. Looks good on your resume 4. Great learning experience 5. Can engage active PI mentorship

Where does this fit in my career? Communicate your PI, potential mentors/committee Graduate Education examples Grants and Contracts (era username) Are you ready? pilot data time to focus appointment status deadlines

Do you qualify? fellowships in topic areas citizenship

Is there money? How will I find it? 1.NIH, NSF, DoD; The Feds “National goals” US citizens and permanent residents diversity Multiple deadlines each year Almost formulaic 2.Foundations and Agencies Non-citizens usually okay One deadline a year Can be quirky mission Prepare the Application: read the instructions!! start early, seek internal reviewers

What makes a strong proposal: easy to review! Proposal is read by smart non-experts and summarized quickly

Phyllis McBride, Ph.D. [email protected]

what makes a strong proposal? A good idea

A strong research idea should pass the “so what” test. What is the benefit of answering your question? Who will it help and how? If you cannot make a definitive statement about the purpose of your research, it is unlikely to be funded.

What makes a strong proposal: Novel hypothesis • Provide a rationale—where did hypotheses they come from, and why are they strong? • Have ideas logically related to you and the lab • Propose testable and measurable studies • Provide alternative possibilities that could be tested why did you choose the ones you did over others

• Clear training potential

What makes a strong proposal: 3 Specific aims steps you are going to take to test your hypotheses what you want to accomplish in the course of the grant period Make sure: Your objectives are measurable and highly focused

Each hypothesis is matched with a specific aim The aims are feasible in technique, time and money

http://www.theresearchassistant.com/tutorial/2-1.asp

What makes a strong proposal: some Pilot data For F30, perhaps a year of work? The goal of this section is to demonstrate experience and competence to perform the proposed project Often, the feasibility of your proposed study is demonstrated through the report of pilot data Can include work of others in lab if cited

Try your hardest to collect pilot data, even if your N is small.

What makes a strong proposal: Career Development Research is NOT the only thing! You articulate how this research training plan increases Likelihood for career success Your PI must articulate a training plan for you Not just research 24/7 Seminars, courses Cold Spring Harbor, collaborations Thesis committee Publication and presentation goals New techniques Presentation skills Resources at University for career development

Do not give up!! You want to earn support Your mentor wants you to earn support Your study section wants to support you Pay attention to the summary statement Resubmit Expect to work at funding, and Enjoy the outcomes

What happens to your application after it is submitted? Scientific Review Group in Center for Scientific Review Study section review// supplements Scores and percentiles Summary sheet
