2021 CHRI Workshop Grantwriting

The CHRI Pediatric Academic Workshop series offers valuable education and training related to pediatric research. The emphasis of this workshop is on grant writing, and attendees will receive instruction from experts on a wide variety of grant writing topics, including budgets, consent and biostatistics.

The latest agenda is available.

The workshop will be offered virtually, and some segments may be offered in a hybrid format. The opportunity for in-person engagement during certain segments will be confirmed and communicated in the coming weeks, as we approach the event and can assess safety and space requirements. 

Mini Grant Competition (Optional)
This is your opportunity to work with a small team of collaborators to put the grant writing skills learned during the workshop into practice. The mini grant competition offers teams an opportunity to compete for up to $15,000 in CHRI pilot funding*. Coaches will be available on Saturday morning to guide teams through their grant writing process. Grants conceptualized during the workshop will be targeted for submission in the November 15 CHRI grant cycle.
 
Workshop organizers strongly encourage groups of two or more investigators who have previously worked together or discussed working together to take this opportunity to bring research ideas to fruition. If you are interested in joining this competition and doing collaborative research but do not have an existing team, you can still sign up. There will be a question in the registration form where you will be asked to list your research interests. The organizers will seek to match you with others who have potentially synergistic research interests.  

Individualized appointments with grant specialists will also be available during Saturday’s session (more information to come).

For questions or concerns, email chri@unmc.edu. Please feel welcome to share this opportunity to fellow investigators in your professional network.

*CHRI grants must meet minimum scoring requirements for funding.
