NRMN invites junior faculty and postdoctoral fellows transitioning to faculty positions to apply for the next Grant Proposal Writing and Professional Development opportunity
NRMN Proposal Preparation Program (NRMN-P3)
NRMN-P3 is one of four intensive grantwriting training programs that is committed to increasing the number of people from diverse backgrounds successfully obtaining NIH grants. It is hosted by the University of Minnesota.
In today’s highly competitive funding climate, the importance of strong proposal writing skills cannot be overstated. Investigators must assume that their great research ideas will be competing against a wealth of other great ideas; the proposals that ‘rise above’ are those that spark an exceptionally high level of enthusiasm in reviewers by presenting compelling arguments for not only the research’s methodologic rigor, but also the project’s anticipated impact on the field, significance for various stakeholders (patients, researchers, clinicians, investigators in different but related fields), degree of innovation, and alignment with the funding agency’s priority areas. All of these proposal features are addressed during coaching sessions within the NRMN-P3 program.

About NRMN Professional Development
NRMN is a nationwide consortium of biomedical professionals and institutions collaborating to provide enhanced networking and mentorship experiences in support of the training and career development of individuals from groups identified by the NIH* as underrepresented in biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social science research careers. NRMN is intended to enable mentees across career stages to find effective mentors who will engage in productive, supportive and culturally responsive mentoring relationships.
The network offers a series of four intensive coaching programs to support investigators who are at a later training stage, specifically postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty. These programs are designed to enhance participants’ career development, preparing them to meet each program’s ultimate goal: the submission of strong research and research career development proposals for funding in the biomedical or biobehavioral sciences.
