As of January 24, 2019, NIH will no longer maintain its list of institutions ineligible to apply for R15 grants. Instead, for R15 applications submitted for due dates on or after February 25, 2019, institutions are responsible for determining their own eligibility. At the time of application submission, a signed letter will be required from the Provost or similar official with institution-wide responsibility verifying the eligibility of the applicant institution (see NOT-OD-19-015).
Institutions can determine eligibility using the NIH RePORT website, a public tool that provides access to information on NIH awards by awardee organization through its RePORTER and NIH Awards by Location subsites. For detailed instructions, see our Need Help Determining Organization Funding Levels for R15 Eligibility? document.
