Grants and Grantsmanship Workshop
The CPFP provides formal training in grantsmanship through a Grants and Grantsmanship Workshop offered each year. In addition to providing didactic and practical experiences in the grants process, a major goal of the workshop is to facilitate successful applications for research funds for all interested fellows. This training is designed to prepare each fellow for a critical next step in his or her career in which demonstrated ability to develop and organize ideas into a well-written proposal will be a major determinant in hiring and promotion decisions. Since the Grants and Grantsmanship Workshop was first offered in January 2000, CPFP fellows have successfully competed for peer-reviewed grants, including NCI Intramural Research Awards, Department of Defense Research Program grants, private foundation grants, and NCI K07, K22, and K99/R00 Career Development Awards.
