Webinar: NIH Grants Process: Walk-Through for Beginners

An NIH guide notice released last week announced a webinar on the “NIH Grants Process: A Brief Walk-Through for Beginners.”

Are you new to working with the NIH grants process? If so, make plans to join your peers as the NIH walks through essential aspects of applying for funding. This event offers participants an opportunity to gain insight into the NIH’s organizational structure and how it funds research, resources to help find the right fit for your research including NIH Notices of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs), an overview of the grants process and peer review, NIH and applicant institution roles/responsibilities, and where to access help along the way.

Hosted by the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER) and the Center for Scientific Review (CSR), this simulive event includes a short recording, followed by a live Q&A with NIH experts. More than an hour will be devoted to addressing questions submitted during registration and new questions raised during the discussion. There will also be interactive opportunities to test your knowledge of submission policies and grant-related terminology.
