NIH Early Career Reviewer (ECR) Program

funding, grantwriting, training

One of the best ways to build your grant writing skills is to serve as a reviewer.

The NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) Early Career Reviewer (ECR) program was developed to:

  1. train qualified scientists without prior CSR review experience so that they may become effective reviewers,
  2. help emerging researchers advance their careers by exposing them to peer review, and
  3. enrich the existing pool of NIH reviewers by including scientists from less research-intensive institutions as well as those from traditionally research- intensive institutions.

The best thing is, prior NIH funding is NOT a requirement.
