When drafting a grant application, you may puzzle over how to approach a certain section or address requirements like the biographical sketch. You might then think, “If only I could see what other investigators have done.” 

The good news: You can with the well-written, top-scoring examples on our Sample Applications & More page, which now has another R01 sample for you to check out. See the recently added Full Application and Summary Statement for "Peptide Autoinducers of Staphylococcal Pathogenicity" from Princeton University’s Dr. Tom Muir. We thank him for allowing us to use his application.*

We hope to expand our list of sample applications and may contact you to request one. If we do, be assured that we will take the utmost care to protect confidential and proprietary information.

*Note that Dr. Muir’s sample application was submitted using FORMS-D. That means it does not reflect new requirements that accompanied FORMS-E in 2018, such as changes to implement the single Institutional Review Board policy and add age as an inclusion factor. For policy changes since then, see Notices of NIH Policy Changes.
