Part 2. Pick and Design a Project

Writing a successful grant application requires careful planning, starting with choosing a project that will excite the application's audience, its peer reviewers.

In this part, we give you a strategy for picking a research project tailored to your experience and qualifications as well as information and advice on designing the research and preparing your application.

If you are not sure how your research fits in at NIH, read What Funding May You Qualify For? in Part 1. before proceeding.

While this document is geared toward the basic research project grant, the R01, much of our advice is useful for other grants.

Pages in Part 2
