Roybal Behavioral Intervention Specific Aims
Writing Workshop

12/5/23 1-4 pm, via Zoom.  


This Roybal Workshop will provide participants with interactive didactic and experiential learning on writing behavioral intervention development grants. The focus will be on writing a Specific Aims page that can serve as a guide for the creating the rest of the grant proposal. Grant writing is a skill and investigators at all levels will likely benefit from participating though the content will be geared toward early intervention development grant writers. Instruction and group activities will be most reflective of skills for internal pilot grant proposals or small external grant mechanisms (e.g., foundation, R03, R21). Participants will be active in small break out groups during the workshop; each small group will have a facilitator. No preparatory work will be required.

Overall Objectives: 

  1. Participants will be able to identify important components and content of a Specific Aims page for early behavioral intervention development.
  2. Participants will learn how a Specific Aims page that can serve as a guide for the rest of their grant proposal.
  3. Participants will be able to identify stages of intervention development as proposed by the NIH Stage Model.
  4. Participants will learn how to integrate Roybal’s 10 Principles of Behavioral Interventions into grant writing.
