primer for f-troop banner


Primer is a seven-session, seminar-format, introductory workshop for pre- and postdoctoral trainees wanting to learn about the NIH and fellowship applications. Primer will prepare trainees for F-Troop, a hands-on writing workshop targeted to trainees who are actively working to prepare an application for an individual NRSA Fellowship (F Awards, including F30, F31, or F32) for submission to the NIH or equivalent fellowship applications to other funding agencies.

The virtual meetings are held weekly, on Thursdays, at 4:00 pm. Meetings are typically 1 hour.
