January 8 to 12, 2019
This upcoming intensive grant-writing workshop (TIGRR) builds upon the successful model used by the Enhancing Rehabilitation Research in the South (ERRIS) workshops that resulted in many junior investigators receiving NIH and other NIH level research funding.
The centerpiece of the TIGRR Workshop is the one-on-one mentorship that maximizes the chance of success. TIGRR participants are not “attendees" that pay a fee and just show up. They are mentees selected by our review committee from the many applications we receive each year, and this is what makes TIGRR so distinctive. The selected mentees will come prepared to complete at least the specific aims for a grant proposal for submission to the NIH or other funding agency.
Charleston (Isle of Palms), South Carolina
The resort, situated on a picturesque island setting, flanked by the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, filled with award-winning amenities including 36 holes of Fazio golf, top-ranked tennis facility, and recreation, wellness, and spa services. Tucked into the heart of Wild Dunes Resort and just 150 yards from the beach is The Boardwalk Inn, offering a relaxed, private feel. The Boardwalk Inn is just steps away from the resort’s recreation centers and the 16,000 square feet of exceptional conference space. Also near the conference facilities is the Village at Wild Dunes, which has dining and accommodations.
The TIGRR Workshop is funded by NIH/NICHD grant number 2R25HD074546-07.
TIGRR is a workshop at the Medical University of South Carolina.
