Get Your Next Research Grant In Competitive Shape In 12 Weeks

This 12-week online training program will demystify the grant writing process and show you how to write your most competitive research proposal—ever.

Learn the strategic moves that will help you transform your seriously blah research grant into a powerful competitor, with 6 video tutorials delivered straight to your inbox.

Every other week, you’ll be invited to attend a live Q&A call where you can get your grant-writing questions answered by Sarah Dobson, a grant writing expert who’s helped PIs bring in over $30 M in research funding in fiercely competitive environments like the NIH and CIHR.


Sarah makes you do the work, not the reviewer


“So often, the really important information is buried deep in the grant because we don't really know what we're doing, on some level, and it comes out in the grant. 

Sarah makes you really think through what you want to do. She makes you do the work, not the reviewer. 

"Sarah’s training offers a clear, focused approach, and she provides a framework to help you do what you need to do to get the reviewer/reviewers interested in your project.”

-- PhD, Vanderbilt University
