    NIH Grant Preparation Workshops for Rehabilitation Research based at
    the University of Virginia, is pleased to announce that it will be
    offering the
    6th Annual Intensive Workshop on Grant Writing, Preparation, and
    Submission in Rehabilitation Research to be held on January 15-20,
    2008 at the Boar's Head Inn in Charlottesville, VA.

    This NIH-sponsored program is a 5-day workshop offering individual
    consultation and group lectures/discussions on grantsmanship, writing,
    research design, and hypothesis generation. Participants will devote
    most of their time to developing their own proposals, assisted by
    senior NIH-funded mentors. With guided preparation before and during
    the conference, a completed NIH-competitive proposal is the goal for
    the workshop.
    All junior and mid-level faculty in any medical rehabilitation
    discipline (e.g., PM&R, Rehab Engineering, Neuroscience, Developmental
    Pediatrics, Neuropsychology, PT, OT, Speech/Language, Nursing) who
    have either not submitted a grant application to or have not been
    successful in obtaining research funding from the NIH are welcome to
    apply. Applications are currently being accepted through our web site
    and will continue to be available until September 18, 2007.

    Each participant will be charged a registration fee of $1,395 which
    will cover hotel costs, all meals, training materials, and logistical
    support. Transportation costs and incidentals are the responsibility
    of the participant. Based on requests from previous participants, we
    are pleased to offer an optional "Writing Day" on Sunday, January
    20th. There are no structured events scheduled for this day and an
    additional fee of $123.50 will be charged for an additional night of
    lodging (meals are not provided on Sunday).
