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. 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.
Are you preparing fellowship or career development grant applications? Point your referees (the person providing the letter) to a new video tutorial that guides them through the process of submitting reference letters for applicants of fellowship and career development funding opportunities.
