Many funders, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), look for community engagement within grant applications. Investigators increasingly need to be familiar with how to include this important work as a part of their grant applications.

This training will help you better understand how to incorporate community partners when writing grant applications. Learn about roles and responsibilities, helpful language in demonstrating partnership, drafting a community-engaged research (CEnR) budget, and how to demonstrate the contribution of CEnR in your grant application.

Due to the high level of interactive training, this series is available as a hands-on, in-person experience only. 

Schedule of activities

  • 12:00 pm – 1:30pm: Seminar and lunch

Learning objectives

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the value of the community in a grant proposal that includes community-engaged research (CEnR).
  • Identify successful CEnR components in a grant application.
  • Discuss the role of the community during the writing and submission process, pre-award and post-award.
