Grant Writing & Funding Opportunities
Thanks to its outstanding faculty, Emory University is one of the top 20 US medical schools in federal research funding and in the top tier for individual federal and private postdoctoral fellowships and institutional postdoctoral training grants.
The Office of Postdoctoral Education (OPE) offers multiple workshops on funding opportunities for postdoctoral fellows each year. In addition, OPE offers small group tutorial sessions for postdoctoral fellows three to four months prior to their grant application deadlines. Be sure to watch for grants workshops and tutorial announcements in our weekly newsletter.
Throughout the year OPE offers a variety of grant writing workshops such as:
- Grants 101 - Introduction to finding funding and grant writing basics. This workshop is recommended to all new postdocs and is intended for those who did not attend any other grant writing workshops
- Finding Funding Techniques - Online techniques for finding funding across all funding sources (federal and private)
- Grant Writing Basics for International Postdocs Fellows - With focus on International applicants who are not eligible for NIH grants, this workshop will cover the basics on the grants process and finding funding
- A Bird's Eye View of Federal Funding for a Career in Academia- for understanding the trajectory of federal funding
- Preparing for K Awards
- Preparing for F32 Awards
In addition to OPE there are additional offices across Emory University that provide research support and services to faculty, trainees and postdocs.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is the central location of grant application processing and support at Emory University. To consult the many services and steps in submitting and routing a grant application to a federal or private grant agency talk to your mentor and department and visit the OSP website.
