Changes for NIH Grant Applications
As of January 25, 2010, all National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant applications must be submitted using new forms and instructions. The changes are part of the NIH Peer Review Enhancements and Implementation Plan, a series of initiatives intended to streamline the grant application and peer review process, helping the NIH fund the best science, by the best scientists, with the least administrative burden.
The revised grant application forms are aligned with new grant review criteria and better emphasize the proposed research's potential impact. The NIH encourages all grant applicants and current grantees to familiarize themselves with the changes.
For more information, including informative slide and video presentations, and the new forms and instructions, visit the website, Enhancing Peer Review at NIH, at http://enhancing-peer-review.nih.gov.
