Welcome to the Emory Office of Postdoctoral Education OPEGRANTS Toolkit.
The OPEGRANTS Toolkit is designed to provide Emory postdocs with the information needed to successfully find, write and submit grant proposals. The Toolkit is a living resource and information will be continuously updated and expanded.
The OPEGRANTS Toolkit has three primary modules:
Grants 101: Education resources start with the Grants 101 module – This introductory module covers everything you need to know about grants for Emory postdocs: why you should apply for grants, how to find grants, what kind of grants postdocs can apply for, how to decide what funding to apply for, getting started with grant writing, and setting up a timeline for submitting a grant application.
The Anatomy of a Grant Application – All research grant applications have certain elements in common regardless of the funding agency. This module covers 1) grant application terminology, 2) Common elements in research grant applications, and 3) How to write the different sections of a research grant. Common elements in fellowship grant applications are also described.
F32 Boot Camp: This module addresses all sections of the F32 application. Postdoctoral fellows planning to submit an F32 proposal should work through this module 3-12 months before submission.
You can access information in the OPEGRANTS Toolkit in different ways:
- OPE Grants Scholarblog (https://scholarblogs.emory.edu/opegrants/) is the home of the OPEGRANTS Toolkit. You can subscribe to get notifications of posts, access asynchronous recordings, get access to PDFs of slide sets, and get the answers to frequently asked questions.
- 1-on-1 Assistance is available, all you have to do is ask (bkinkea [at] emory [dot] edu).
- ‘Office hours’ are continuous and a call or Zoom can be arranged as needed.
- Examples of successfully funded grants are available upon request.
- Feedback can be provided for any grant document.
