Other NIH Resources

  • NIAID: Prepare Your Application. This proposal preparation and writing guide includes sample grant applications. Applicants to NIAID and many other NIH Centers and Institutes will find it a useful resource.
  • Center for Scientific Review: For Applicants. Resources that give an inside look at how scientists from across the country review NIH grant applications for scientific and technical merit.
  • All About Grants: Podcasts from NIH. A series of podcasts from the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER) provides insights on grant topics for investigators, fellows, students, research administrators, and others. Transcripts of the presentations also are available. New topics continue to be made available.
