The Center for Global Health of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S., in collaboration with the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC), are holding a Sub-Saharan regional grant writing and peer review workshop to encourage Sub-Saharan investigators to address public health issues through research. The workshop will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa November 18-20, 2013. 

Workshop topics will include tools and tips for use in writing grant applications, who’s who at funding agencies, the peer review process, research and training funding opportunities for Sub-Saharan African scientists at NIH and other organizations, and management of grants at the recipient institutions in Africa. In order to make the workshop a practical hands-on experience, applicants must submit a concept paper with their application. Selected applicants will discuss their paper/proposal during the workshop. The potential applicants are Sub-Saharan African biomedical research scientists and clinicians who plan to apply to grants from NIH and other participating agencies and organizations; administrators who are managing grants at their institutions. Up to sixty (60) applicants will be selected on a competitive basis through an evaluation of submitted applications and other required documents. Travel Awards will be available to qualified candidates.
