Opportunities and Resources

If you’re a graduate student or postdoctoral researcher, consider applying for an individual fellowship award to support your research training.

In The News

Beginning in January 2023, applicants will be required to describe how they plan to manage scientific data generated by research projects and which of these scientific data and accompanying metadata will be shared.

A request for information from NIH seeks input from the general public and stakeholders in the scientific research, advocacy, and clinical practice communities to inform NIH’s research interests around SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

Keep track of resources and flexibilities available to researchers. For example, grant applicants should not include contingency plans outlining responses to potential limitations brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Advice Corner

When you describe the roles your colleagues will play in support of your planned research, the terminology you use might affect your eligibility for a funding opportunity announcement, as well as the information required in the grant application.
