K Awards Training

August 19 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

K Awards: A Path to Success is a combined web-based course (5hrs) and livestream workshop (6hrs) that will familiarize participants with the fundamentals of successful K award applications. The major goals of K Awards: A Path to Success is to orient attendees to grant-writing and grant-strategizing for successful K applications, including how to position their research and themselves to engage reviewers. Participants will work with CareerVolt workshop leaders with a proven track record of helping applicants improve and position successful K applications. Attendees will learn about different K award mechanisms, how K’s are unique from R’s, and strategies to maximize each K award component. They will gain an understanding of the goal of the K award program, which is critical for maximizing funding success. This workshop targets researchers who have submitted or will be submitting a K award application or are thinking about submitting a K award application within six months to one year from the workshop date. Additional Information: There are a few requirements to attend this training: 1. Participants must complete the web-based course (consisting of online videos and activities) prior to the livestream training session. Participants will be given access to this module about two weeks before the live training, and will take about 4-5 hours to complete. 2. While this workshop targets trainees, it is unsuitable for pre-doctoral students. All participants must have completed a PhD, MD, and/or DVM. 3. Participants will be asked to send a draft Specific Aims page to instructors to receive initial feedback ahead of the workshop, and have their draft aims (whether their real or ‘disguised’ research) seen* by others in attendance.
