Internal Grant Review

The Internal Grant Review aims to:

  • improve the science and presentation quality of externally submitted grants.
  • provide mentoring to trainees including graduate and medical students, postdoctoral associates, residents, fellows, and junior faculty on grant review and grantsmanship.

Grant reviews take place annually in April, September, and December, approximately two months prior to NIH deadlines.

The deadline for December 2023 has passed but will soon open applications for the April 2024 cycle. Be prepared to complete a brief form indicating the title of the grant, the mechanism for the grant application (i.e. F31, R01, K08), and three suggested reviewers in January 2024. Contact with any questions.
