Getting your NIH grant approved is no easy task. Only about 20% (or fewer) of your submitted grants will be funded (this percentage is even worse for new investigators). But, what you may not realize, is that your rejected applications can still get you funded.
Resubmissions actually have a much higher success rate than initial applications – IF you know what reviewers are looking for. You must have a systematic process for analyzing your proposal reviews, and understanding what changes must be made to get your grant approved.
You can find out exactly how to get more of your resubmitted NIH grants approved by attending this upcoming online training session on Wednesday, March 14th at 1pm ET, presented by veteran researcher and grant writer, Dorothy Lewis, PhD (I’ve included a brief bio below).
By attending this 60-minute online training, you’ll receive proven advice on how you can improve your grant revisions, resubmissions, and approvals. You’ll receive answers to critical questions (i.e. How to respond to critique thoughtfully; Who to talk to at NIH about your grant and when; What to include in your introduction statement; How many times can you resubmit your application; When it’s better to move on and start fresh; etc.), and many more.
Here are just a few of the step-by-step, practical NIH grant resubmission tactics you’ll receive by attending this upcoming, 60-minute online training:
Proven tactics to reidentify the most appropriate NIH agency, program and review group for your grant
Uncover the best ways to communicate with the NIH to improve your approval percentages
More effectively respond to reviewer critique lingo on your rejected applications
Key components of a third submission that can make all the difference
Identify whether your grant has a chance, and how to improve your chances of funding next time
Recognize the most likely ways to improve your resubmission, and what to really focus on
Detect additional, viable angles for your application to improve your resubmission results
Effectively address reviewers and really give them what they want
Resubmit a truly competitive proposal that makes you stand out and get your funding
And so much more…
Your best strategy is not to take a grant “rejection” personally. You must have a clear head to be able to carefully consider what issues your reviewers had problems with, and how to overcome them. The onus is on you, even if you feel you’ve explained things well enough in the first submission. You can get more of the funding you deserve, with a little help. Don’t wait, sign up today.
