Overview of the Webinar:
After submitting a grant application, you learn about the funding decision and are provided with a summary statement of reviewer critiques. For most of us, the grant application will not be funded on the first try and we are left with the possibility of resubmitting the grant for a second round of reviews. A number of questions arise: How can I interpret the score (or lack of a score)? Should I resubmit? How should I respond to the reviewer comments? How can I strengthen my application for resubmission?
In this webinar, Dr. Margarita Alegría and Dr. Benjamin Cook will provide suggestions and recommendations for resubmitting research grant applications. Reviewers’ comments can be numerous, difficult to address and/or understand, and at times conflicting. Building off of decades of experience applying and securing grants for projects in mental health care disparities and health services research, sitting on study sections, and ad-hoc review committees for federal and foundation grant applications, and providing consultation on the direction of extramural funding for federal and foundation organizations, Drs. Alegría and Cook will offer suggestions about how to work with program officers and incorporate reviewer comments to modify and improve the grant application.
For this webinar, Drs. Alegría and Cook have selected two grant applications that are in the resubmission stage written by New Connections network members and will provide advice on improving the grant application and responding to reviewer comments.
