Grant Development Program

CPC’s Grant Development Program (GDP) provides new investigators with hands-on mentorship and administrative support to develop their research for external funding and is co-directed by Matt Hall and Erin York Cornwell.

CPC will once again partner with the Cornell Center for Health Equity (CCHEq) and the Cornell Center for Social Sciences (CCSS) to offer the CCSS NIH Grant Development Writing Program. Last year, we supported a cohort of 16 scholars in the workshop series, awarded 6 pilot grants, and supported 7 Grant Development Fellows who have (or will soon) submit grant proposals to NIH. This year, we will again be able to provide resources and mentorship opportunities to support the development of competitive NIH grant proposals.

The program will again focus on mentoring PI eligible social scientists through the process of writing an NIH grant from concept to submission. The program has three components – a workshop seriespilot grants, and grant development fellowships.

The NIH Grant Development Workshop Series is open to the entire Cornell community. Applicants who are accepted to the 2023 grant development cohort will be required to participate in the 3-part series (beginning February 10th from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm and running through mid-April). Upon completion of the workshops, cohort members will be eligible to apply for one of two development tracks – pilot grants of up to $3,000 or Grant Development Fellowships with support of up to $10,000.

Members of the 2022 cohort who did not participate in the grant development fellowship track last year are also eligible for the 2022 development tracks but are not required to participate in the 2023 cohort (though they are welcome to attend any sessions they choose).
