They will prepare sections of an NIH-style fellowship proposal in time for those eligible to submit an F31 NRSA application for the December deadline. This proposal will also comprise the written component of the preliminary exam. Students will also learn the elements of the closed-door component of the preliminary exam and how best to prepare.
