NIH Expertise

1:1 for R or K

Our goal with a applicant is not to improve a single submission but to improve our client’s skills as an applicant, reviewer, and mentor on all grant submissions going forward. 

NIH Grantwriting Program

We work with universities and academic medical centers to mentor faculty in NIH grantwriting in the R and K Series.

The NIH Grantwriting Program is a comprehensive, multi-modal approach to give applicants the best chance of landing an NIH R or K grant.

This approach includes:

  • 1:1 mentoring, emphasizing preparatory steps before writing
  • Line-by-line editing of Specific Aims page, Research Strategy, and Biosketch; if applicable, Introduction, Candidate Section
  • Two full years of access to select virtual grantwriting courses, packed with templates and samples from recent successful applications.
  • Step-by-step instructions and checklists, with progress tracked in a learning management system 
  • Reminders and interim deadlines to help pace applicants to deadline
  • Access to every-other-week live member Q & A with Dr. Bouvier and colleagues
  • After the review, a discussion of Summary Statements and next steps

Editing and Advising


We contract with universities and academic medical centers on behalf of groups of R/K applicants.

We do not contract with individuals nor for individual R or K submissions. For details on contracting with our company
