This course is designed to coach a research team, consisting of an early- to mid-career investigator/trainee and their chosen mentor(s), through the process of drafting and organizing an NIH-style grant application.
Via distant learning modality, the course coordinator will systematically guide the team through the fundamental parts of a grant application, establish a timeline to complete all the necessary documents, and review and edit the proposal as necessary, prior to submitting the application for funding within two to six months after the Bootcamp is completed.

- Have committed to the time/effort necessary to meet writing milestones and deadlines to complete the proposal by the end of the course;
