Pre-Award and Grant Management Mentorship

Led by the VPCAT Research Manager, the Pre-Award and Grant Management Mentorship program component increases VPCAT's capacity to mentor alumni and current VPCAT scholars through both the pre- and post-award processes.

The goal is to provide 'Staff' mentorship, an essential component of the Matrix Mentoring Model, to ensure scholars gain hands-on experience and senior guidance to improve their ability to submit and manage a grant successfully.

The VPCAT Research Manager provides mentorship, guidance, and training through five key capacities:

  1. Grant Editor and/or Formatter 
  2. Initial Grant Submission Consultant 
  3. Program Data and Tracking Lead 
  4. Research Education, Mentorship, and Training Lead
  5. Information and Resources Facilitator

VPCAT scholars who fully utilize the Pre-Award and Grant Management Mentorship opportunities are better prepared to excel as independent principal investigators.
