The IPPH Grants Mentoring Program prepares participants to compete successfully for extramural funding.

Applications are welcome from Augusta University faculty members of any rank whose research interests broadly align with public health. Applicants should not have previously received significant extramural research support as Principal Investigator. The 2-year program provides a systematic training experience that includes workshops, seminars, and staged guidance on proposal preparation. Periodic reports and presentations track participant progress through program milestones. Successful program completion includes submitting an extramural grant through IPPH.
