Seed Funding in College Student Menalt Health


Much time and work goes into writing and submitting your first NIH grant proposal. The considerations you must make are complex and can be confusing unless you get the right support. It takes enormous bravery and hard work to submit in the first place because the scrutiny of review is intense, and, depending on the type of proposal and institute to which you submit, the odds are stacked against you getting funding. NIH funding is highly competitive, and it’s understandable to feel discouraged and unsure whether to resubmit or how to approach amending your proposal.

Based on a review of NIH proposal outcomes, amended proposals resubmitted to NIH are much more likely to be discussed during review, be scored better, and receive funding the second time around.

  • But what goes into a successful re-submission?
  • What considerations do you need to make?
  • What needs to be said in your 1-page introduction?
  • How will your re-submission be reviewed?

InCHIP’s Re-Boot Camp, led by Seth Kalichman and Tricia Leahey, will cover these topics and more.
