In The News

If challenges precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic prevent you from applying on time, you may submit late, though no more than two weeks late, with the delay explained in your application’s cover letter. NIH will consider accepting late applications on a case-by-case basis.

We’ve updated our fiscal year paylines for National Research Service Award fellowship (F30, F31, F32) and training (T32, T35) grants. We now have fiscal year paylines for all grant types for which we use paylines.
