Primer is a seven-session, introductory seminar designed for individuals wanting to learn about the NIH and individual fellowship applications. Primer will prepare trainees for F-Troop, a “hands-on” grant writing workshop targeted to trainees who are actively preparing applications for individual National Research Service Awards ( F30, F31, F32) for submission to the NIH or equivalent fellowship applications to other funding agencies. Primer is open to trainees at all levels.


The sessions are held weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. All sessions will be virtual via Zoom.
