NIH Updates Electronic Application Forms (FORMS-C)


We’ve been busy preparing for our transition to updated application forms for most grant programs, as described in our May NIH Guide Notice and in the Nexus. Our funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) now have the new FORMS-C application packages added, and the old packages (B1 and B2) are set to expire.

Here are some updated resources you may want to check out:

  • Updated Frequently Asked Questions for Application Forms Updates and Choosing the Correct Forms
    • Pay special attention to the FAQs on choosing the appropriate forms for applications submitted for the September 9 AIDS deadline and under the continuous submission policy
  • New Application Guides for Forms Version C in both Word and PDF format
  • Annotated Form resources with field-by-field tips for Forms applications

If you are submitting to one of the few NIH programs (Fellowship (Fs),Career Development (Ks), Training (Ts) and Small Business) that aren’t moving to FORMS-C yet, use the B package available with your FOA. For all other programs use B application packages for due dates before September 25, 2013 and FORMS-C packages for due dates on/after September 25, 2013.
