  • Distinction between interdisciplinary (resulting in the creation of new disciplines) and multidisciplinary (bringing together multiple disciplines) Director’s Innovator Award: - Supports individuals, not projects - May utilizes totally new peer review process - Provides $500K/year for five years - Encourages innovation, risk-taking - Expected to be highly competitive
  • The NIH Extramural Team consists of review, program, and grants management segments. The NIH seeks to ensure integrity and accountability in it grants administration processes by Relying on system of checks and balances separation of responsibilities None of these persons are responsible for or report to the other. Although these segments are separate and distinct, but do overlap in small but significant ways.
  • Standard Postmark/Submission Dates for Competing Applications Detailed chart is at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/submissionschedule.htm RFAs and some PARs have special receipt dates indicated in the specific NIH Guide Announcement. * Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) are accepted by many NIH Institutes and Centers (IC) for only one or two of the dates. ** Program Project and Center Grants - Applicants should check with individual ICs since some ICs do not accept P series applications three times a year. *** Individual Pre-Doctoral Fellowships (F31) for Minority Students and Students with Disabilities have special receipt dates. All AIDS and AIDS-related applications (no matter the type) are submitted on the AIDS and AIDS-related dates.
