Grant Writing & Funding Opportunities

Thanks to its outstanding faculty, Emory University is one of the top 20 US medical schools in federal research funding and in the top tier for individual federal and private postdoctoral fellowships and institutional postdoctoral training grants.

The Office of Postdoctoral Education (OPE) offers multiple workshops on funding opportunities for postdoctoral fellows each year. In addition, OPE offers small group tutorial sessions for postdoctoral fellows three to four months prior to their grant application deadlines. Be sure to watch for grants workshops and tutorial announcements in our weekly newsletter.

Throughout the year OPE offers a variety of grant writing workshops such as:
