NIH Research Grant Templates

Depending on the scientific content and administrative structure of your grant, you may be required to submit some or all of the documents listed below. The Proposal Development Office has prepared these templates to serve as a helpful starting point for developing your NIH grant application. All documents should be tailored to meet the specific requirements of your grant. We update these documents as needed and the date of last update is in the header of each document.

Beginning on/after May 25, 2020, grant applications to NIH must use FORMS-F application packages. The templates below comply with the FORMS-F instructions.
