Basics of Grant Writing

This web-based training is targeted primarily to graduate students in OSU's College of Public Health and Human Sciences (CPHHS) who are new to the world of scientific grant writing. It is a self-paced training that provides information and resources to help start you on the path to writing competitive grants. Each module has a short assessment quiz or survey. After completing all module assessments, you will receive a certificate of completion.

The course's target grant module is for the National Institutes of Health, but the curriculum also covers the basics of applying for funding to all agencies (NSF, NASA, USDA, etc.).
