CPRC NIH Grant Workshop


Workshop series designed to support Columbia Population Research Center members’ NIH grant applications. This workshop is intended for first time submissions and resubmissions as well as faculty transitioning from K awards to their first R. Members will participate in workshops to learn about the application process, receive feedback from a senior mentor in their field, and engage in peer mentoring activities with faculty who share a similar goal.

Workshop Activities

CPRC and the School of Social Work Office of Sponsored Projects will collaborate on a series of workshops designed to increase knowledge about the grant application process and competitiveness of submissions. Workshop participants will be paired with mentors, who will provide feedback on their grant, and receive a mock review from senior faculty affiliated with CPRC. The Center will also organize opportunities for peer mentoring amongst workshop participants.

We highly encourage applications from:

  • Junior Faculty, Early-Stage Investigators, and New NIH Investigators
  • Faculty from underrepresented minority groups. This includes faculty who identify as a member of one of the groups that NIH defines as underrepresented in the health sciences and/or who identify as sexual and gender minorities.

Priority is given to:


  • Funding Opportunity (R01, R03, R21, R34)
  • NIH Branch (e.g., NICHD)
  • Ideal mentor(s) (must be affiliated with CPRC)
  • Draft specific aims or research question of interest
  • CV or Biosketch
