The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), in an effort to enhance career development opportunities for its mentored K-awardees and help in their transition to independent research careers, sponsors a workshop on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland on a biennial basis. Participation in the workshop is by invitation only and limited to NIDDK-funded mentored-K awardees (K01, K08, K12, K23, K25 and K99).

The purpose of the workshop is to offer NIDDK K-awardees an in-depth view of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), NIDDK, and the grant submission and review process. The workshop provides an opportunity to become familiar with the roles of various NIH staff, the types of grant support and resources available, and the inner workings of the peer review system. Senior investigators from the extramural NIDDK community provide grant-writing tips and career advice. NIDDK program staff also meet in small groups with the attendees to answer questions about funding opportunities within NIDDK.

To ensure this opportunity is available to all funded NIDDK mentored K-awardees, new or resubmission individual career development applications beginning with the June 12, 2014 due date, should include a request for up an additional $1,500 total costs (these costs may exceed the current NIDDK budget caps for research support) in travel support in the first year's budget. These travel costs will be restricted for the purpose of travel to Bethesda, MD to attend this career development workshop.
