The NIH has released a short You Tube video, “Tips for Electronic Grant Submission Success”. This seven minute video provides 10 helpful hints on successful submissions.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announce a change in policy on application submissions. Effective immediately, for application due dates after April 16, 2014, following an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) application, applicants may submit the same idea as a new (A0) application for the next appropriate due date. The NIH and AHRQ will not assess the similarity of the science in the new (A0) application to any previously reviewed submission when accepting an application for review. Although a new (A0) application does not allow an introduction or responses to the previous reviews, the NIH and AHRQ encourage applicants to refine and strengthen all application submissions.
Investing in Science, Engineering and Education for the Nation’s Future (2014-2018)
For fiscal year 2014, NIH has a budget of $30.15 billion, an increase of $1 billion over fiscal year 2013.
According to NIH’s Extramural Nexus newsletter, “Because of the increased NIH budget as compared to last year, and due to the cycle of out-year commitments, we should ultimately be making more competing awards in FY 2014. This is very positive news as it should result in reversing the trend of RPG success rates sliding lower each year. Remember, however, the success rates are dependent on the number of applications received, so as long as application numbers stay near or below where they were last year, combined with a higher number of awards, success rates should go up.”
