Grantwriting Uncovered: Maximizing Strategy, Help, Opportunities, Experiences

The National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) was created to address the unmet need for greater diversity in the biomedical and biobehavioral research workforce. GUMSHOE is one of four professional development-training programs committed to increasing the number of scholars from diverse backgrounds who are successful in becoming independent investigators and securing NIH grants. GUMSHOE workshops were hosted by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Washington State University.

GUMSHOE linked mentors from various disciplines who have highly successful track records in obtaining federal funding and grantwriting coaches with early career faculty mentees from traditionally underserved and/or underrepresented minorities who wished to prepare an application to NIH to conduct biomedical research. GUMSHOE uses a model based on innovative best practices, and convenes cohorts of junior faculty working with specific underserved and underrepresented populations.
