Proposal Writing

NIH – Short Guide to the Preparation of NIH Grant Applications

The guide is organized according to the major sections of the PHS-398 Grant Application Instructions. Each section is described, and a checklist is provided detailing what that section should cover. In addition, suggestions are included to enhance an application’s success. The checklists are not exhaustive, but rather are designed to jog the application writer’s memory and ensure completeness. This document in no way obviates the need for an inexperienced applicant to seek further advice from experienced colleagues or from appropriate program personnel at NIH.
