Grants Workshop

Presented by the NATA Foundation Research Committee

Thursday, June 30, 2022. 10am-12pm ET at Philadelphia Marriott, Philadelphia, PA

The NATA Foundation is bringing together a nationally recognized group of mentors that have obtained success with external funding agencies to maximize the chance of research funding for athletic training investigators. This 2-hr workshop provides the expertise and support to improve funding successes by providing guidance on 1) the development of a scientific aims page, 2) understanding the review process, and 3) selecting the appropriate grant mechanism/agency. The target audience for this workshop includes junior and mid-level athletic training researchers that are on the cusp of success but could benefit from expert mentorship in grant development. Post-doctoral fellows and doctoral candidates who are transitioning to faculty positions are also encouraged to register to attend.

The centerpiece of the workshop will include small group specific aims mentorship to maximize the chance of success. Attendees will be expected to come prepared to share and receive feedback on the specific aims for a grant proposal for submission to the NATA Foundation, NIH, DoD, and other agencies funding athletic training research.

Space is limited; participants will be invited to the session on a “first come, first served” basis. Registration is required. Please complete the registration form via the link below.
