Roundup of Reference Letter Resources


Some NIH programs, such as fellowship and mentored career development awards, require the submission of reference letters. PIs designate 3-5 referees to submit letters directly through eRA Commons that are then linked to their submitted applications.

The eRA Commons screens for submitting reference letters were recently updated to enhance user experience, security, and stability (see New Look and Feel for Submit Reference Letter Screen in eRA Commons). Since many of our resources were updated to reflect the new link used for submitting a reference letter, we thought a resource roundup was in order.

Reference letters are only required and only accepted when specifically requested in a funding opportunity announcement. When requested, refer to these resources for a smooth submission process.
