This introductory-level webinar focuses on preparing grant application budget proposals for federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. The speakers, Paul Craig and Ann West, cover the nuts and bolts (including definition of key terms) of grant budgets, strategies for putting together a budget proposal, and making a budget justification that matches the scope of work of the project. A Q&A session follows the presentations.

This event was part of the ASBMB’s observance of National Postdoc Appreciation Week.
