Mentored Grant-Writing Program
The 2021 Research Academy Scholars application process is open. The six selected UAMS faculty members/scholars will target a February 2022, R01 proposal submission. Approximately one half of selected Scholars work in clinical and translational research.
Shuk-Mei Ho, Ph.D., Vice Chancellor of the Division of Research and Innovation (R&I) created the Research Academy to enhance the UAMS research community, create innovative/sustainable care models, transformative medical breakthroughs and elevate UAMS research excellence and success overall. This aligns with the UAMS Vision 2029 mission to make Arkansas the healthiest state in the region.
Per our mission, UAMS-affiliated faculty researchers in full time positions are invited to attend a free, virtual workshop led by nationally recognized grant-writing expert, Peg AtKisson, Ph.D., Monday, May 24 to Thursday, May 27, 9 – 11 a.m. daily.
This UAMS Research Academy workshop is open to a limited number of attendees and will prioritize assistant and associate professors who are planning to submit a NIH R01 grant application for the February 2022 deadline. Since slots are limited, early sign-ups are encouraged.
The Research Academy grant writing workshop is co-sponsored by UAMS’ Division of Research & Innovation, Translational Research Institute, and Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. For questions about this grant writing program, please contact Paul Duguid at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Workshop attendees may also nominate themselves for Research Academy Scholars positions. The six-to-eight selected scholars will receive continued grant-writing assistance from the AtKisson Training Group through the fall in preparation for their R01 submission. Research Academy Scholars will be selected from interested attendees of the workshop through a peer review process. More information will be provided during the workshop.
