Recent NIH policy changes can make it even more difficult to get the R15 AREA grant dollars you need. With up to $300,000 in funding dollars on the line, you can’t afford to submit a subpar application.

Preparation is key, and a little help can go a long way. That’s where scientific mentor and grant writing expert, Dr. Alix Norris, comes in.

During her online training Dr. Norris will share the key elements that can help turn your R15 application into much-needed research dollars. In only 60 minutes, Dr. Norris will provide you with the strategies you need to sharpen your grant writing abilities so you can create a strong, compelling research application.

Here are just a few of the step-by-step, insider tactics you’ll receive by watching this R15-specific online training:

  • Solidly pin down NIH R15 grant goals and review criteria to increase your funding chances
  • Construct your budget with better accuracy and detail
  • Write a more convincing Specific Aims that gets reviewers excited about your application
  • Structure your Research Strategy to more clearly convey your objectives to reviewers
  • Utilize the skills and abilities of your undergrads as the main workforce for your grant.
  • And much more!

R15 grants don't require any preliminary data and can be renewed multiple times. This means you can utilize this mechanism to sustain your research project to its natural end. But remember, only about 15% of these applications get funded each year by the NIH, so you’ve got no room for mistakes

Overcoming NIH‘s intense competition and heightened federal spending restrictions is no easy task. But, with the boost in confidence you’ll gain after attending this online training, you can significantly improve your chances of getting the R15 funding you need.
