NIAID Paylines

Find all current NIAID paylines in the table below. Our most recent update was on February 16, 2024: We updated interim fellowship (F31, F32) paylines below. Find older paylines in the Archive of Final NIAID Paylines by Fiscal Year.

Paylines are funding cutoff points for the grant application types listed below. Following the Financial Management Plan, NIAID funds most applications in order by percentile (R01 only) or overall impact score (others). Each fiscal year (FY), NIAID sets initial paylines conservatively and sets final paylines later. We may fund beyond the paylines near the end of a FY. Learn how NIAID Paylines and Budget Information Changes Throughout the Year.
