You might be surprised to learn that we don’t have a generic set of forms posted on our website that you can use to submit to any NIH grant opportunity. Each funding opportunity announcement (FOA) includes the specific set of forms needed to apply to that program, so you need to find an FOA in order to access the application forms. Walk through the process of finding and accessing application forms with this grant application submission tips for success video.
Form-by-form, field-by-field instructions for completing your application may be found on the How to Apply – Application Guide page under the green header for Application Form Instructions. Use these instructions in conjunction with the guidance in the funding opportunity announcement (including the Related Notices section of the announcement) to develop your application. The annotated form sets are another handy tool to help you navigate the forms.
