Grant Writing Scholars | South Central MIRECC
The Grant Writing Scholars program provides a small number of investigators with didactic training and individualized mentoring in successful grant writing and is coordinated by Dr. Michael Cucciare, SC MIRECC Associate Director for Research Training.
A small group of applicants selected for the program will write and submit a draft grant proposal in January 2022. Each draft proposal will be reviewed by two investigators (mid-career and senior) in the SC MIRECC to provide helpful advice to strengthen the application, and then discussed via teleconference with the grant writer for individualized feedback.
In late February 2022, the grant writers will attend a one-day didactic workshop featuring Dr. Geoffrey Curran, Professor, Departments of Pharmacy Practice and Psychiatry; Director, Center for Implementation Research University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; and Senior Research Health Scientist, North Little Rock Health Services Research and Development Service (HSR&D), Center of Innovation, Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, and Dr. Ellen Fischer, Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science, and Department of Epidemiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences; SC MIRECC Assistant Director for Research; and Senior Research Health Scientist, North Little Rock HSR&D Center of Innovation, Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System.
This program has received outstanding ratings, and most past participants have been subsequently successful in obtaining funding. The workshop will either be held in-person (most likely) in Little Rock or Houston or virtually by videoconference.
