Grant Application Mentoring
Join The PSF at PSTM 2018 for a valuable session to obtain insights from grant experts through informal presentations about writing good grants (e.g., avoiding pitfalls, tricks of the trade and secrets for success); and to obtain feedback on your proposals. (Those wanting individual mentoring on grants should submit their draft applications/aims page in advance of the program.)
Through the ASPS Researcher Education Subcommittee (REC), the PSF Grant Application Mentoring Session is offered at PSTM each year and is a valuable opportunity to gain expertise and feedback on writing good grants from seasoned grant writers and reviewers. This year, the program will occur on Sunday, September 30 from 10am to 12pm. Those who submit an application or aims page can receive detailed and direct feedback on their draft proposals; In addition, reviewers will be on hand to present and share their ideas and insights to all who attend.
Through the REC Grant Mentoring Workgroup, The PSF will also begin to offer grant application mentoring throughout the year with applications being accepted three times per year (January, May and September); and scheduled reviews and feedback provided. The Workgroup is Chaired by Arin Greene, MD and includes participation of other leaders in the field of plastic surgery research.
To participate in the September Session or to obtain feedback on your proposal, please contact Mary Ruth Arway, MA, Research Grants Project Manager, The Plastic Surgery Foundation.
