F-Troop banner


F-Troop is a hands-on writing workshop that targets pre- and postdoctoral trainees who are preparing an application for a fellowship award (e.g., F30, F31, or F32). Equivalent fellowship applications to other funding agencies are also encompassed by this program.

The virtual meetings are held weekly, on Wednesdays, at 5:00 pm. Meetings are typically 1-2 hours.

Seminar Format
F-Troop is conducted in a small group, informal format. F-Troop sessions include discussions of the NIH peer-review process, including communications with NIH officials and selection of study section, as well as UT Health San Antonio associated requirements (eCOP and Cayuse). Most importantly, major effort is devoted to case-by-case presentations and evaluation/discussion of F grant components prepared by individual trainees. This interactive group effort provides friendly, but frank, feedback toward the goal of submitting a competitive F application.
