The K Award Writer’s Series is a 10-session program designed to provide step-by-step instruction, personalized feedback, and a disciplined approach to the development of a K Award grant. The course includes ten sessions over a 6-month period. The target audience is early career faculty who intend to submit or resubmit a K Award or similar career development award within the next year. Enrollment is limited to 12 participants so that personalized attention and feedback can be given to each person.
Each session focuses on a particular aspect of writing the K Award application. Sessions will include discussion and review of previous work, with emphasis on common concerns/areas for improvement; didactic presentations, tips, and advice; practice exercises and group discussions. Writing assignments follow each session. Session topics include:
