Training & Mentored Grants Support

The Office of Education and Training (OET) at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center supports the application and management of cancer-focused training grants in several ways. We offer grant workshops, resources and support for the application process. We also offer post-award management for selected training grants.

OET held annual grant writing workshops for fellowship (F) applications and mentored career development (K) awards. The two-day workshops cover funding opportunities, what really matters in the review process, fundamentals of successful grant writing, specific aims, the approach section, selling yourself, how to help your mentor/sponsor design a compelling training program for you, and other topics. Workshops were also held specifically for mentors. Videos and workbooks from these activities are available through the University of Miami’s Blackboard course management system:
